Join us for an evening of fun and great musical entertainment from Lou Wamp and the Bluetastic Band as the Old Copper Road Preservation Alliance presents the first ever Fiddlin' @ 5ive Points, celebrating the impactful role the Old Copper Road has played on our region. Proceeds from the event will benefit the mission of the Old Copper Road Preservation Alliance. Attendees will also have an opportunity to win an assortment of different prizes made possible through community support and donations.

We are extremely excited to have Lou Wamp and the Bluestastic Band join us for the inaugural event. Their band presents a show filled with instrumental prowess and great stage presence featuring fine original material based in bluegrass, swing, & swampy blues. From haunting to barn-burning, Lou's incredible dobro and slide talents are backed by a band of players who can go there with him. Friends for decades and life-long musicians, the members of the band have performed and recorded professionally with many different ensembles across the Southeast. They have performed at many major festivals in the South including multiple appearances at Riverbend, Nightfall, and Three Sisters festivals. The band formed around 2008 and features Brad Frazier on lead guitar and vocals, whose voice and guitar playing command attention from anywhere within earshot, East Tennessee Fiddle Champion Meredith Goins, and Lynn Wamp holding it down on bass and backing vocals. They are often joined by banjo legend, Jim Pankey.
