Valdosta - Farmers in South Georgia have had a hard year with droughts, freezes, and fires.
A new event in Valdosta is hoping to lend them a hand.
Valdosta music lovers Cory Howard and Brad Bonner have created the Calypso Music Festival.
The all day concert event will feature nine bands, vendors and all proceeds will go to Farm Aid and assisting South Georgia Farmers. "Being raised by a community that's very strongly related to farming and agriculture, that really gave us the idea and we thought this community has raised us and given a lot to us and we should give something back," Howard says.
The festival will take place at 1805 West Hill Avenue on September 8. Bands include Wilson Empire, Tim Brantely, Chuck Nash, Yancy Clegg, Blackeyed Katy, Corey Crowder, Andersonexplains, Night Driving Small Towns and Chris Woods. Vendors are still needed.
They hope the concert will become an annual event.
