Joe Mullins & The Radio RamblersThe Southern Ohio Indoor Music Festival is just around the corner and is expected to be one of the biggest and best events of the season! This year's fall festival will take on a special meaning for Joe Mullins. Janet Davis Acoustic Music and the Radio Ramblers will be working together at the festival to benefit breast cancer support. Joe's Mom, Prudence Mullins, passed away just over a week ago after battling breast cancer and Janet Davis Acoustic Music has donated a Martin guitar to be given away in an effort to raise funds for breast cancer research in her memory. Proceeds will benefit the Ohio area Breast Cancer fund. "I am certainly grateful for all the prayers and support from the Bluegrass community, and the help from our supply sponsor, Janet Davis Acoustic Music will have lasting benefits", stated Joe.

The 2-day event slated for November 9th and 10th will once again host some of the most exciting talent in bluegrass including Rhonda Vincent & The Rage, Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice, The Gibson Brothers, Ralph Stanley II, Larry Stephenson Band, The Little Roy & Lizzie Show, The Spinney Brothers and the Snyder Family Band. If that weren't enough talent already, the event is hosted by Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers who will perform both days.

Having met at a concert in Northern Virginia this past spring, Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers and Janet Davis Acoustic Music found common ground quickly.
