Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Buddy WoodwardDalton, GA -- The Dalton Freight Depot was alive with excitement and music as a record audience spilled outside the historic venue to hear performances by The Dixie Bee-Liners, Jubal's Kin, Lone Mountain Band and Earl Brackin. Emcee, Geoff Morris, visiting Dalton from Bendigo, Australia opened the show by saying "Tonight is a Miracle Night". The event was a CD release party for Bluegrass Bands Helping Hands Volume Three - Big Leagues. The CD is a compilation bluegrass music project to benefit The Miracle League of Whitfield County. Millie Hicks, Miracle League member stated, "It was an amazing night with fantastic music. The level of talent of these bands is incredible and we are so thankful for their support of the Miracle League. With their help and the great community turnout, we were able to raise over $4,400 for the Miracle League bringing us ever closer to that first pitch."

Morris speaking to the audience said that Miracles can happen in two ways. "Miracles can happen by faith and paraphrasing someone else saying you can also create miracles one dollar at a time".

The show was recorded and will be broadcast Monday September 26th at 8pm eastern on Wall-to-Wall Bluegrass at www.WorldWideBluegrass.com. The CD is available at 25 locations in North Georgia and can be purchased on-line. For more information visit www.BluegrassBandsHelpingHhands.com.
