Country music to fill festival air once again

October 17, 2001

Maple Leaf Festival visitors will have country music as a backdrop for the weekend's events beginning Friday evening and continuing through Sunday.

The music events begin with an open jam session Friday night under the music tent west of the post office.

"Anybody who wants to come up and play or sing live country music can," Maxine Scott, music tent coordinator said. "Anybody off the street, I guess you'd say."

The free music continues all day Saturday under the tent after the completion of the morning parade. A number of area country and bluegrass bands will be featured.

The music tent isn't a new attraction at the Maple Leaf Festival. The tent, which has featured a number of bands and musical performers, has been a tradition since 1985.

"It's always been really good," Scott said. "Anybody's welcome to attend."
