Heritage Sunday set for July 14


Heritage Sunday is scheduled for 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday, July 14 at the Bryant Cottage State Historic Site in Bement.

The event will feature music by the High Cotton bluegrass and gospel music band. The east central Illinois band aims at the heart of the high-lonesome sound, full of foggy bottoms and smoky mountain tops, complete with three and four-part harmonies, along with banjo, fiddles and Monroe style mandolin.

The 33rd Heritage Sunday will also include free hot dogs, popcorn, and root beer floats at intermission.

Activities will take place on the lawn of Bryant Cottage.
