We will have raffle tickets for sale and will be calling winners all night for some great prizes. Light snacks and refreshments will also be available.

Jody Bevill of the BCF Board of Directors and BCF Member Kyle Jones will be playing some of the most famous, and maybe a few of the not so famous, tunes from the Civil War era along with some songs inspired by the War. Jody and Kyle have been entertaining Mississippians for over a decade as members of the rock band, The Whiskey Barrels.

Attendees are welcome to come learn, listen and sing along in a fun atmosphere in a local historic Main Street setting. Get excited with us for a fantastic weekend of Civil War fellowship June 7th-10th!
