The second and final show for Music for Miners was held Saturday in the Bell Theater. It was a successful two weeks of music that was organized by Bell County Tourism and Main Street Pineville. “All proceeds from the show will go toward helping our local, out of work miners,” Bell County Tourism Director Jon Grace explained. “During the shows, miners were admitted free with three family members.” Many musicians reached out to participate in the two week event.
