The Friends of the Cooper Memorial Library will host the Cooper SummerFest 2017 Summer Concert featuring a live performance of the Judy Family Bluegrass Band on Wednesday, June 7, 2017 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. on the Main Floor of the library.
Because bluegrass is acoustic music, their instruments are not amplified, allowing them to play their organic sounds with perfect purity. With each performance, the band, featuring three generations of Judy musicians, is on a mission—literally. They perform at churches, family reunions, weddings, fundraisers, and festivals spanning from South Georgia to south Florida. For them, it’s not just about music. It’s their ministry. It’s not about entertainment, it’s about faith. Their firm faith has helped them garner a firm following and their personable, down-to-earth appeal makes others comfortable with opening up to them—including complete strangers. The Judy Family Bluegrass Gospel Band consists of Cecil Austin’s three children, Dennis Judy, Randy Judy, and Cindy Boone. Randy’s son, Dakota, and Cindy’s husband, Ricky, are also members of the band.
This is a free program and everyone is welcome to attend. For more information about our live music series and other special events at the library, please contact Dennis Smolarek at 352.536.2275 and email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
