KEYSER - Performers, craftspeople, and vendors are being sought for the inaugural Minco Music Heritage Festival which is set to be held June 17-23 in and around Keyser. 
This is a community festival with activities and entertainment for young and old alike. The festival will celebrate the history and diversity of music in the local region, with special emphasis on the two Mineral County members in the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame: Don Redman and Jack Rollins. 
Performers of all genres are being sought and plans call for stages in both downtown Keyser and Brooks Park as well as in local venues during festival week and after hours each day. 
      The festival committee is inviting crafters, food and other vendors to offer their wares during the weekend of June 21-23.   Besides the musical entertainment, plans are underway to offer workshops, tours and children’s activities, as well as holding a car show.
Planners are also organizing a foot race and guided kayak trips along the North Branch of the Potomac.
