Our Facebook follower and friend Travis Oliver kindly shared his family’s pictures of the Imperial Bald Mountain Park Bluegrass Festival from April, 1975. The festival was operated on his family’s land in Hiawassee, Georgia and had quite the line up: Bill Monroe, The Osborne Brothers, The Stanley Brothers, and Jimmy Martin. The Hiawassee Cloggers also made an appearance.
With Oliver’s permission, we shared the pictures on IBMA’s Facebook page for Throwback Thursday, and needless to say, it was wildly popular.
