The Lumpkin County "Invest in the Future" initiative will hold a Bluegrass/Country Music Concert on Saturday, Feb. 16.

At 7 p.m. at Lumpkin County High School, bands from all across North Georgia will saw, pluck and strum their instruments with all the funds going directly to Lumpkin County School teachers.

The concert will feature John Martin and the Southern Drive Band, The BS Band with Gary McCullough and group, The Buzzard Mountain Boys and the Pick & Bow Traditional Music School students.

Tickets, which will be available at the door, are $10 for adults and $5 for students. Lumpkin County High School is located at

2001 Indian Drive in Dahlonega.

Organizers said the concert is guaranteed to be entertaining for any music lover, but even more importantly, will be a direct benefit to the teachers and students of Lumpkin County.

Invest in the Future is a Lumpkin County Retired Educators Association-sponsored initiative to raise funds to provide teachers with mini-grants for enrichment activities in the classroom.

A number of fundraising activities are planned and carried out by an Invest in the Future Task Force composed of retired educators, school employees and concerned community members.
