This video starts out with a slideshow of photos then goes into live videos.

The Morehead Old Time Festival was started by Brett Ratliff in 2005. Back then it was called The Morehead Old Time Fiddler’s Convention.

The goal of The Morehead Old Time Festival is to preserve Kentucky’s rich heritage of old time music. The festival is managed by the Kentucky Old Time Music Inc. and runs entirely upon volunteers.

In memory and honor of Fred W Brown Jr. 1954 – 2011

Fred was a big part of The Morehead Old Time Festival and most of us knew him. Fred was a Kentucky author and historian and song writer. He will be greatly missed by the many friends and loved ones he left behind.

    Researching for a graphic design class. I have been sharing Karly Dawn, is that what she will call herself since seeing it fit to take her man’s last name? (:>) Thank you for the archive’s of many things. It woul be great to enjoy music in more casual settings too, not just festivals.
    Thanks so much again!
