‘High, lonesome sound’ to be heard down Santo way


People milling about in the dappled shade of oaks and mesquites. The "high, lonesome sound" of a singer's voice wafting through on a cooling breeze, his melody riding high and clear on the music of guitar, banjo, mandolin and fiddle. It's time for some good, old-fashioned fun. It's bluegrass festival time.

Local fans of bluegrass music can reserve a spot at the three-day bluegrass festival coming next week to Coffee Creek RV Resorts and Cabins in Santo.

The fourth annual Spring Bluegrass Festival begins April 11 and ends April 14, with several artists and groups on board to perform.

RV sites are renting for $25 per night and cabins are also available for a minimum three-night rental.

In addition to bands including WestBound, Bluefield Express, Bluestem, Joe Bass and the Double Mountain Boys, and many more, the festival will also include custom crafts and food vendors.

A pot luck dinner, along with live gospel music, will begin take place on the opening night.

Admission to the full event is $30 per person and a one-day pass is available for $20.

Those interested in making a reservation can call Coffee Creek at (940) 769-2277 or learn more by visiting coffeecreekrvresort.com.

Coffee Creek RV Resort and Cabins is located at 13429 U.S. Highway 281 South in Santo.
