Folks are gearing up for the 23rd annual 'Swamp Gravy'

COLQUITT, GA (WALB) - Volunteers are preparing for the 23rd annual "Swamp Gravy" performances in Colquitt.

So she's trying to find that peace in her life," said Kate Willis, Artistic Director of Colquitt-Miller Arts Council.

Swamp Gravy is Georgia's official folk life play.

Performances run from March 6th through the 28th on Friday's and Saturdays.
