Each year, Nashvillian Bill Ramsey hosts a birthday bash honoring Otha Turner and his music - this year's event will honor Otha Turner's lifetime of music and his legacy.

Although Otha is no longer with us, his spirit and music live on in Sharde Thomas, his granddaughter, who continues the centuries-old fife and drum tradition along with other family members in the Rising Star Fife and Drum Band.
