Bluegrass gospel fills BPACC
Bluegrass gospel music rang throughout the Bartlett Performing Arts and Conference Center last weekend for a production of the musical “Smoke On The Mountain.” BPACC Director Michael Bollinger directed the production, and the cast came from open auditions held late last summer. Cast members and musicians hailed from Bartlett, Memphis, Cordova, Atoka and northern Mississippi.
