Pioneer Days Concert: Juanita Fireball & the Continental Drifters

July 9, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Join Pocahontas County locals Juanita Fireball & the Continental Drifters for the Thursday night Pioneer Days concert! Music, games, and demonstrations highlight the event that many come “back home” to celebrate. Look at all the fun there’ll be – crafts, carnival, concessions, flea market, horseshoe pitching, parades, youth events, contests, demonstrations, antique car show, truck and tractor pull, mud bog, and lots more!

Juanita Fireball & the Continental Drifters debuted at the Pocahontas County Opera House in 2008, although they have been making music together in one form or another for twenty-five years. They play Appalachian string band tunes, many of which they learned years ago from old-timers in West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina. They sing songs about animals, outlaws, fruit and love, with a few gospel numbers for balance. The high energy of their hard-driving music will have you dancing in the aisles.

The band consists of Mike Burns and Jay Lockman on twin fiddles, Mary Sue Burns on clawhammer banjo, Wayne Walton on the doghouse bass, and John Sparks and Terry Richardson on guitar.
