July 6- The Thunderbolt People and Tim Michaels to perform in park

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Want to go somewhere on the July 4 weekend?

The Thunderbolt People and country performer Tim Michaels will be in London on Saturday, July 6, at Levi Jackson Wilderness Road State Park.

The Thunderbolt People (David Owens and Casandra Smith) will present a program starting at 5:30 p.m. at the amphitheater in the campground, followed by Michaels at 8 p.m.

The Thunderbolt People are the native people who lived along the Cumberland and Laurel River plateaus. Appearing in Cherokee dress, they will present a brief history of the Native Americans who lived along the Cumberland, Laurel, and Rockcastle rivers, and telling folklore and dancing.  

  “I would recommend bringing lawn chairs,” Owens said. “I am retired now but at one time was the Kentucky State Military Historian. I have authored two books that are familiar with Laurel Countians. Baptism in Blood-The Camp Wildcat Affair and McNitt’s Defeat-Indian Massacre on the Little Laurel River. I am a native of Mt. Vernon and also attended Sue Bennett College and was a lifeguard at Levi Jackson from 1978 to 1980. So it is kind of a homecoming for me.”

  For more information about the Thunderbolt People, contact David Owens at scoopowens24@yahoo.com. For more information about Tim Michaels, call the park at 330-2130.
