Carter Caves State Resort Park to host festival

OLIVE HILL, Ky. (AP) - A northeastern Kentucky park will host a music festival that pays tribute to old-time music and eastern Kentucky traditions.

The annual Fraley Mountain Music Gatherin' is set for Sept. 3 to 6 at Carter Caves State Resort Park.

The festival began as a family reunion. It's also a tribute to the late master fiddler J.P. Fraley.

Musicians will be jamming in parking lots and sharing music around campfires at the park.

Musical instruments such as dulcimers, fiddles and guitars are used to tell stories about life long ago in the eastern Kentucky foothills.
