The 23nd Annual Stringbean Memorial Bluegrass Festival will be held Thursday, June 20 to Saturday, 22, 2019, at Stringbean Memorial Park in Tyner, KY. Celebrating its 23rd year, the festival honors Jackson County native and beloved Grand Ole Opry star David ‘Stringbean’ Akemon. His unique stage attire, traditional claw hammer banjo style, and entertaining stage banter endeared him to fans around the world. ‘The Kentucky Wonder’ was best known for his musical comedic performances on the hallowed stage of the Grand Ole Opry beginning in the 1940’s and on the television series “Hee Haw” until his tragic death in 1973.
Hall of Famer Larry Sparks will headline the 2019 event, along with Ralph Stanley II & the Clinch Mountain Boys, and Sammy Adkins & the Sandy Hook Mountain Boys.
