Local fiddler Ridge Roberts set for busy Saturday

Ridge Roberts, a 10-year-old Hood County fiddler, will be busy on Saturday, Sept. 7. He’ll perform in the evening as part of the Triple Cross Cowboy Church Granbury Old Opry at 3470 Lipan Highway in Thorp Spring. That event, featuring country music star Georgette Jones (daughter of George Jones and Tammy Wynette), is set to start at 7 p.m. and there is no admission charge. Earlier that day, starting at 1 p.m., Ridge will play in Fort Worth during “The Kids of Western Swing” event in the Livery Stable at the Cowtown Cowboy Church, 128 E. Exchange Ave. Several others will perform in that free event, as part of the Grand Entry Weekend for the church, which formed in March.
