Bands and Musical Acts Performing



Music Coordinator, Kermit Wright has an excellent variety of old-time country, bluegrass and gospel music planned for the 13th Annual Halifax County Heritage and Antique Machinery Festival May 6-8 at the Halifax County Fairgrounds.


Saturday afternoon’s line up includes: Kyle Martin and the Halifax Hillbillies performing from 12:15 until 1:30, followed by High Grass from 1:45 pm until 3:00 pm.  High Rock Ramblers take center stage from 3:45 pm until 5:00 pm.   The four member band, all in their teens, formed last fall and is determined to keep bluegrass music alive.  Banjo player, Chris Crews says, “We feel entitled to continue the wonderful genre of music called bluegrass since it seems to be fading away.”  “We want to keep the tradition going as all of our families have a musical background and have played in bands all their lives.”  Band members include Jason Smith on mandolin, Kyle Hiatt on guitar, Stephen Comer, bass, and Chris Crews on banjo.   Long time favorites, Ollie Adams and the Slick Rock Pickers are set to play from 5:15 pm until 6:30 pm.  Nelly Zamora Jones will entertain from 6:45 pm to 8:00 pm.  Nelly's melodies are filled with rhythms of blues, Latin, and Caribbean beat with her own original songwriting and cultural flavor.  Nelly has performed to a variety of audiences at special events, festivals, charities, and local restaurants throughout the community.  Rounding out Saturday’s line up is the Chris Crews Band scheduled to play from 7:15 pm until 8:00 pm. 

Gospel groups scheduled for Sunday afternoon include Steve and Rhonda Powell from 1:30 pm until 2:45 pm and the Hillbillies Gospel Band from 3:00 pm until 4:15 pm.
