Both were totally involved in their community and gave generously to all. Tony was a master luthier and loved both making mandolins and playing them. One of which is on permanent display at the Smithsonian Art Museum. He repaired instruments for many musicians and had one of his own played by Bill Monroe.
Ann loved story telling, and shared her love with countless children in North Georgia's schools, hospitals and churches. She was an artist, avid reader, and genealogist. Each year they were Father & Mrs. Christmas to Dahlonega and the surrounding areas and were loved and admired by children all over Georgia. Tony and Ann were always diligent to show up at “Art in The Park” each year to “make music” and bless those around them with their fun and lighthearted presence. During this time Tony, along with Mark and Adam Garrison, decided to start a band, calling themselves BlueBilly Grit.
After only one year Tony and Ann were tragically killed in an auto accident. Being impacted by this couple in so many ways, BlueBilly Grit decided to start a commemorative festival to honor their friends and to continue the legacy that Tony and Ann had started. Please join us in giving to our community and blessing those around us with stories, music, and love.
The “Tony and Ann Ianuario Folk and Bluegrass Festival” was created to give back to the organizations that were closest to their hearts, Helping Hands (a mentoring and tutoring program), Friends of the Jefferson Public Library, and The Tumbling Water’s Society.
Sponsorship will help cover the cost of bands, flyers, t-shirts, and promotion. All other proceeds and monies collected will be given to the above programs.
Held in Conjunction with "Art in The Park" at Hurricane Shoals in Maysville, Ga.
Tony and Ann would be proud!
