The Man Behind the Legacy

Inspired by Howard “Louie Bluie” Armstrong, this music and arts festival aims to bring together some of the strongest talent in the area that embodies the spirit of Louie Bluie. It celebrates Armstrong’s contribution to the arts and encourages musicians and artists to hone their own talents. Historically, Campbell County is a place steeped in roots music, and that’s still true today. It’s the home of Armstrong, the festival’s namesake, who grew up in LaFollette in the 1920s and was an incredibly talented man – visual artist, storyteller, and U. S. goodwill ambassador who played fiddle, mandolin and guitar, among others.
