Bluegrass, Country, and Gospel comprise the impressive band schedule, the Cockman Family hosting musicians and audience in the Murray’s Mill Amphitheater. Included in the ticket price ($5 at the gate) is a tour of the mill, whose original French buhr millstones grind away producing bags of flour, a prized and usable souvenir.
