Jim Meckley – Tonight! (Tuesday) at 7PM

Jim Meckley, or Back Gate Jimmy, is not only a talented musician, but is also a pillar of Cheat Fest. From his seasonal home at the river, Jim has helped bring so many parts of the fest together. This year, he had already volunteered much of his time to organize the vendors. And now, with the cancellation, he brings us his beautiful tunes, from the festival grounds to our homes! Enjoy, our friend, Jim Meckley.

UPDATE: Ah – The internet!! We’re frantically trying to get this one going. Adam Payne to the resue – this video will be on Facebook Live at 7PM. We’ll work on getting it posted here after. Click here to link to the Facebook.
