CARYVILLE, TN (WLAF) – The 13th Annual Louie Bluie Festival is tomorrow (Saturday, Sept. 28) and is a celebration of roots music in Appalachia. The festival takes place at Cove Lake State Park in Caryville, a town in the heart of mountain music country. This year’s list of performers at the Louie Bluie festival is huge!We have five stages, including one stage that is devoted solely to child and teen performers. You don’t want to miss Campbell County natives Joseph Henley, Dustin Ford or the Roberts Sisters, and that’s just a few of our child prodigies!

We’re thrilled to host Evan Carawan, a celebrated American hammered dulcimer player from Knoxville. He’s the son of Guy and Carawan, major players during the Civil Rights era. Guy introduced the song We Shall Overcome to the movement. We also have a super talented reggae band ( The Natti Love Joys ) and an Australian duo ( The Weeping Willows ) gracing our festival with their talents.
