Everetts Music Barn hosting fundraiser

SUWANEE — A potluck fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday at Everetts Music Barn in Suwanee.

The second annual fall fundraiser is for ongoing renovations and improvements at the 49-year-old bluegrass music venue that hosts several bands each Saturday night. The featured duo this week are 85-year-old identical twins Banner and Kannett Smith, originally from Tucker, said Tommy Everett, the venue’s soundman and curator.

“They sing, and pick, and cry, cause they’re so happy to see each other,” Everett said.

Kannett Smith now lives in Winston Salem, N.C., but the brothers have played music together for 75 years, Everett said.

Music begins at 1 p.m., and a potluck dinner will start at 5 p.m. while music from several groups will play into the evening.
