Jackson County-based Stringbean Memorial Bluegrass Festival announced today the stars scheduled to shine in its headlining spots this Summer, as it kicks off its 21st Annual event on Thursday-Saturday, June 15-17, 2017, at Stringbean Memorial Park on Oak Grove Church Road in Tyner, KY.


Headiners for the festival include Hall of Fame member Larry Sparks & the Lonesome Ramblers; Ralph Stanley II and the Clinch Mountain Boys; Eastern Kentucky's own Dave Adkins, whose last album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart, and Shawn & Gracie Lane of Grammy-nominated super group Blue Highway. Also appearing are Sammy Adkins & the Sandy Hook Mountain Boys, local favorites Laurel River Line and the Letterbox Boys, along with festival host Phillip Akemon and his band FlatLick.


At least 18 bands will perform at the three-day event, including the Fritts Family, Larry Sigmon & Martha Spencer, Bear Branch Bluegrass, Wilderness Road, the Campbell Mercer Family, Archie Campbell's son Phil Campbell, and Southland Drive featuring Richmond’s Bluegrass Express Radio Host Charlie Hall on banjo.

The annual festival honors Jackson County native and beloved Grand Ole Opry star David ‘Stringbean’ Akemon. His unique stage attire, traditional claw hammer banjo style, and entertaining stage banter endeared him to fans around the world. ’The Kentucky Wonder’ was best known for his musical comedic performances on the hallowed stage of the Grand Ole Opry beginning in the 1940’s and on the television series “Hee Haw” until his tragic death in 1973.


With a rich history and beautiful locale at Stringbean Memorial Park, the festival has hosted the biggest stars in Bluegrass including the legendary Ralph Stanley who headlined the inaugural event in 1996. Other celebrated Bluegrass royalty brought in by festival founder Phillip Akemon include the Queen of Bluegrass Rhonda Vincent, 14-time Grammy winner Ricky Skaggs, Hall of Famers Del McCoury and Doyle Lawson, and 26-time IBMA Award winners Blue Highway.
