ZALMA, MO (KFVS) -

Zalma Masonic Lodge hosted the 6th Annual Castor River Bluegrass Bash on Saturday.

Event organizer Leevon DeCourley says not only does the concert raise money for good causes in the community, but it also brings top-notch bluegrass music to the area.

The headliner was The Kody Norris Show. The band works regularly on the Cumberland Highlanders Show, a weekly Bluegrass Program on RFD-TV network. The Kody Norris Show is based out of Mountain City, Tenn. and tours nation-wide.

"We try to provide a very high-energy show for all the folks, kind of with a nostalgic look of the bluegrass bands of yesteryear and try to bring something to the stage that not everybody does," Kody Norris said.  

The Po' Ramblin' Boys, from Gatlinburg, Tenn., also performed along with The Leevon DeCourley Band, Old Santa Fe, and the 545 Traveling Men.

Proceeds from the show go to Zalma Masonic Lodge. DeCourley said members will then use the money raised for charitable projects in the community.

"I really enjoy doing things like this, bringing great music to our area while raising money for a great organization,” DeCourley said.
