Garden & Gun magazine description:“Othar Turner, called ‘Otha,’ was a Mississippi farmer who was one ofthe last people in the country to play fife-and-drum music, anendangered genre that predates the blues in the Deep South. Turner beganhosting Labor Day picnics behind his house sometime in the 1950s,playing music and cooking goat for friends and family. Word spread, andtoday, a decade after Turner’s passing, the party is larger than ever.With no lineup, no set lists, no maximum occupancy, and a sweaty crowdfueled by soulful music … anything couldhappen.”
