HYDEN, Ky. (WYMT) - One local festival-turned-relief concert raised quite a bit of money for flood relief efforts.

The 29th Annual Osborne Brothers Hometown Festival, which was already scheduled, was turned into a relief concert to raise money for the Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky following the deadly flooding in late July.

According to Joel Brashear, the Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky’s chairman, announced on Facebook Monday that the benefit raised $56,000 for the foundation’s flood relief efforts. Multiple nights of concert programming also aired right here on WYMT and Hazard radio station WSGS.
