Location: Several venues around downtown Blairsville
Time: Not yet specified

Long before the first professional Southern Gospel Quartet in America hit the road in May, 1910, our mountains were filled with the sounds of music. Shape note to Rock, solos to choruses -- all will be performing on five stages around Downtown Blairsville. Music vendors and crafters are invited to the 3-day event. Free admission, donations appreciated. Check the website www.MountainGospelConvention.org periodically for updated information.

Sponsored by Union County Historical Society and Downtown Development Authority of Blairsville.

I wish I was going to be there. I am so bored with this place. I can't wait to get out of here.

I just love this place,Blairsville. I can hardly wait to move there.I am a country girl at heart, and i am tired of this city here.However the weather is beautiful here right now. Getting used to the cold would be hard but as long as i have flannel shirtsGo to Top of Page
