Everett’s Music Barn has been hosting bluegrass music shows in North Georgia for years, and has been a gathering place for Georgia fans and pickers on Saturday nights since 1970. They hold concerts with national touring acts every other weekend, with Saturday open jams on the out weeks.
A great many musicians who have emerged from this area of the US cut their musical teeth at Everett’s, included Jeff Autrey, and Ray and Jeff Deaton.
We heard recently from Andrew Iden, an independent film producer in Atlanta who is finishing up a documentary about Everett’s, Pick A String, which he hopes will be completed by early in 2009. It is expected to run between 20-30 minutes, and Iden plans to enter it into a number of film festivals next year to generate some attention.
A two minute video trailer for Pick A String is available to give you a taste of what the finished project will be like.
Andrew has promised to keep us updated as post-production wraps up, and we will pass along what we learn.
