20th Annual Cousin Jake Memorial Bluegrass Festival

The Cousin Jake Memorial Bluegrass Festival, established in 1994, is an event that celebrates bluegrass music and honors the late Jake Tullock, a native of Etowah, Tennessee. Tullock began his professional music career on the old Cas Walker and Mid-day Merry Go Round radio shows in Knoxville, Tennessee. He eventually joined Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs as a bass player and comic, performing with them for 20 years as “Cousin” Jake. After his retirement from Flatt & Scruggs, Tullock returned home to Etowah where he continued to perform until his death.

**Please note:  The venue for this Festival is the Historic Gem Theater.  This facility is both handicap accessible and ADA compliant.
