From the annual Georgia String Band Festival and Fiddlers’ Convention in Calhoun to the weekly Pickin’ Porch jams in Dahlonega, songs that were once played by Fiddlin’ John CarsonRiley Puckett and Clayton McMichen can still be heard in Georgia. Today, Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Norman Blake, the Skillet Lickers, the Georgia Crackers and Beverly Smith & John Grimm are just of few of the Georgia musicians who keep the songs and traditions alive.
