Lawn chairs and blankets fanned out from the stage and across the blighted hillside behind Central City Elementary School as music fans came from around the world to welcome the Everly Brothers home again.
With T-shirts bearing the names of the stars across their backs and cameras pressed to their faces, they wound along the crowded dirt path and popped flash cameras at the feet of the entertainers. Muhlenberg County natives and Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame members Phil and Don Everly turned in an hour-long performance in place of their normally brief set at the 12th annual Central City Music Festival and Everly Brothers Homecoming.
"It's fun, and I think we'll just keep doing it until it's not fun anymore," said Don Everly, who, along with his brother, headlines the event to raise money for the Everly Brothers Foundation, which has awarded nearly $71,000 in scholarships to Muhlenberg North and South high-school students since 1987.
