The Rock Creek Ramblers will be pickin’ and grinnin’ on Friday, June, 29, at 8 p.m. at the Rock Creek Recreation Area Kiwanis Campfire Program.
A long-time favorite at the Campfire Programs, The Rock Creek Ramblers are a group of six talented musicians. Five of them are descendents of Mr. W. Hensley, the sixth is “a real good friend.” Together, they make up the bluegrass group that many will remember for a special show at the Campfire Program last year and in previous years.
The Rock Creek Ramblers have a family reunion each year at the time of their Campfire program performance. Family and friends will pour into the Rock Creek Recreational campground with tents and RVs from all over the country. They will have a good time, and give you a great time during their program.
This is the 18th year of the Campfire Program, sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Erwin with the support of the Cherokee National Forest Service. The programs are absolutely free, including a marshmallow roast after the show. The program will last one hour. Everyone is invited to bring the entire family.
