To showcase the musical and vocal talents of the youth in this area, 4-H, in association with Catch the Spirit of Appalachia, will again produce the Heritage Alive! Mountain Youth Talent Contest during the Franklin Folk Festival, July 16, on the Main Stage in downtown Franklin. Contest time is 1:30 until 2:30. Once again, Joe Deitz of the Deitz Family Band will emcee the contest.
Participants in this contest must exhibit a talent that will reflect heritage and old Appalachian ways of our region and adhere to the qualifications and rules set up by the organizers of the the talent contest and the Franklin Folk Festival. This competition will be held on the main stage and will be part of the “heritage” entertainment provided during the festival.
