Homemade Jamz, more to perform at Amory fest

By Sheena Barnett/NEMS Daily Journal

The blues, gospel, rock ‘n’ roll and country collide at the Amory Railroad Festival this weekend.
The festival starts tonight and lasts through Sunday in downtown Amory. Arts and crafts, a car and truck show, 5k run, food, a carnival and more are all on the festival’s schedule. It’s free to attend, but the 5K walk/run has a registration fee.
Tupelo’s own blues band, the internationally famous Homemade Jamz Blues Band, will perform Friday, along with country artists like Ashton Shepard, rock ‘n’ rollers like The Gondoliers and gospel group Angels of Love.
