CARYVILLE, TN (WLAF) – It was quite the turnout on a near perfect weather day for Saturday’s annual Louie Bluie Music & Arts Festival.

Tennessee Arts Commission Director of Folklife Dr. Bradley Hanson watches as Brendan Stewart demonstrates the art of coopering, “the art of making wooden vessels.” The demonstration was part of the Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program, which was showcased at this year’s Louie Bluie Festival held on Saturday.
