October Business of the Month:

High Cotton Music Hall

The Hart County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that High Cotton Music Hall is the October Business of the Month. They opened in 2015 in the 100 year old Cotton Warehouse located on 57 Depot Street just one block off downtown Hartwell, Georgia. It was formally called Bluegrass Express until two families, the Walter Gordon’s and the Stephen Crump’s took it over and with some simple remodeling, and they transformed it into a premier music listening venue.

Their programing schedule encompasses all genres of American Roots music with local, regional and nationally known artists.  Every third Saturday is a Blues Jam open for any musicians. The commitment to creating a true music environment for the serious music lover brings people from all around the region to their venue every Saturday night. Pictured below are some of the fans of High Cotton who came to be in the photo shoot to show their sign of support. You can go on line to book a ticket or see their music line up at www.highcottonmusichall.com or via facebook @highcottonmusichall.

Co-Owner, Stephanie Crump stated: “We are truly grateful for these and all of the other dedicated customers that love High Cotton Music Hall and attend our shows month after month. They are an important part of what makes High Cotton the special place that it is!”

The Hart County Chamber thanks them for their vision, their passion and their love of great music.
