The Wilderness Road Campground amphitheater in Cumberland Gap National Historical Park will play host to a free concert at 8 p.m. on Saturday. Local musicians Larry Goodwin and Ken Wilson will be performing a concert entitled “An Appalachian Moonlight Musical Evening”.
Park Ranger Matthew Graham warmly extends an invitation to all. “Larry and Ken will perform some amazing original acoustic music that is truly Americana. The duo’s repertoire will include songs about taking a back road home, a miner’s request ‘to bury me far from the coal mine with a tombstone of #9 coal,’ a redheaded darlin’ from Harlan, and the soldier who came back in ‘04, to no home, no family and no parade.”
With a smile, Ranger Graham gently suggests that cell phones be left at home.
The Wilderness Road Campground is located in Virginia, two miles east of the Hwy 25E and Hwy 58 intersection. Visitors should proceed to the amphitheater, located at the end of loop C where parking is available. In case of rain, the program will be held at the national park visitor center.
This program is being co-hosted by the Friends of Cumberland Gap.
