 Thirteen years ago Marty Stuart started a Country Music tradition. At 10PM, right after the CMA awards are over Marty started putting on a show he called the Late Night Jam.

Not only does the show feature Him and his Fabulous Superlatives (Kenny Vaughn on lead guitar, Paul Martin on bass, and Harry Stinson on drums), he invites musical friends of all types to come play. This photo gallery is of his opening segment. It also features Eddie Stubbs the Opry announcer and fiddle player and the Opry Square dancers.

The LEAF Festival is the region’s premier family friendly camp out and music/arts extravaganza.  This three day multicultural conglomeration of the arts happens twice a year at the beautiful Camp Rockmont on Lake Eden in Black Mountain, NC.  They call it Lake Eden for a reason: the venue is absolutely paradise.  LEAF Festival features astounding mountain views and fun outdoor activities such as hiking, swimming, boating, and even a zip line.  LEAF is also the perfect place to bring your whole family.  There are entire stages and installations devoted to entertaining children and teaching them to appreciate music and art.  There are workshops for people of all interests and ages, not to mention traveling visual arts performers and parades that you can find wandering the festival grounds at any time.  One of the greatest things about leaf is the blend of world cultures that all come together to create a melting pot for people to experience. From Contra Dancing and West African percussion to didgeridoo workshops and Qi Gong, this festival has it all.
