Jeromie Stephens braved the bitter cold for Saturday’s special get together to mark the 50th anniversary of bluegrass concerts at the Lucketts Community Center in Lucketts, VA, known to locals as the Old Schoolhouse. He captured a bit of the stage show, but mostly focused on participants backstage, which at Lucketts, means the classrooms.
