There are so many reason to look forward to fall in the south… a break from summer’s temperatures, football, pumpkin spice everything, and LOBLOLLY FESTIVAL!  This year’s festival will be held on Saturday, October 7th and will feature live music, craft demonstrations, vendors and food trucks from across the south.

Let Us Entertain You!

Our music lineup offers something for everyone!

From 9:00 -10:00 a.m., Pinebelt musician and artist, Thomas Jackson, will take the stage. At 10:20 a.m.Scott Chism & the Better Half will bring their traditional country style to the stage.  You’re sure to be entertained by their blend of traditional country and hillbilly bluegrass!  During the lunchtime hours (11:55-1:00 p.m.) you’ll enjoy the unique mix of originals plus covers styled by Galen Martin & the Crutches.  Be sure to stick around for the cutting edge sounds of award-winning bluesman, Lightnin Malcolm, beginning at 1:35 p.m.  This one-man-band has rocked juke joints across the south combining elements of Funk, Soul, Rock, Reggae, Hip Hop, West African World Beat, Gospel and Country.  Rounding out our performers this year is southern rock guitarist, George McConnell & The Nonchalants.  You might recognize McConnell from his time as lead guitarist in the bands BeanlandKudzu Kings and Widespread Panic.  McConnell’s style blurs the lines between classic rock, jazz, soul, blues, and country, and creates a sound all his own.  With two decades of stage experience, you’re sure to be entertained by this Mississippi native!
