The Bear on the Square Mountain Festival has produced its first CD, which features some of our performers. The CD was introduced at the 16th annual Bear on the Square Festival and will continue to be on sale this year.
Entitled "Bear on the Square 2012", the album is priced at $12 and includes one song each from Ugly Cousin, John Lilly, Whitepath, Curley Maple, Glenda Pender, The Rosin Sisters, the Pick & Bow Band, The Georgia Crackers, Curtis Jones with Insonnia, the Packway Handle Band, the Buzzard Mountain Boys, and John Grimm & Beverly Smith. All proceeds will go to help pay festival expenses. Shipping is included in the price. The CD will also be sold at Bear on the Square merchandise locations during the Festival.
"This project is something people have been asking us to do, and I have to say that the result is an impressive compilation of songs and musicians," said Glenda Pender, president of Bear on the Square.
