Description

Ola Belle Reed (1916-2002) was an acclaimed songwriter and musician, recognized by the Smithsonian, the National Endowment of the Arts and many additional organizations.

Such celebrated artists as Marty Stuart, Del McCoury and the incomparable Tim O’Brien have recorded her signature song, High on A Mountain.

Featuring top-notch award winning visiting and local musicians from Americana, Bluegrass, Old-time, Country and Folk traditions, the Ola Belle Reed Festival is a community-based event and fundraiser sponsored by the Greater Lansing Area Development Committee (GLAD), a 501(c)3 organization committed to the revitalization of Lansing, the birthplace of Ola Belle Reed.

The Festival site is located in the town of Lansing, near the banks of Big Horse Creek and in the shadow of Phoenix Mountain.

Musical acts will provide continuous day and evening concerts in addition to instrumental, songwriting, and voice workshops. In addition to the artistic programming, we provide a Craft Market, Food Court and much more.
