Moonshiners Coming To Olde Downtown Tavern

Last updated on Sunday, February 3, 2013

(BEDFORD) - Tim Smith and Tickle, from Discovery Channel’s “Moonshiners” series, will be at the Olde Downtown Tavern on Feb. 9 to sign autographs and share stories from bootlegging moonshine and other aspects of rural life.

According to Downtown owner Scott Smith, there has been a lot of interest in the upcoming appearance by the southwestern Virginia duo.

Smith says the 300 tickets that will be sold for the show are going fast. Advance tickets are $13 and if there are any left the day of the show, they will be $18. The doors will open at 6 p.m.

The bio for Tim on the Discovery Channel website reads: "Descended from three generations of moonshiners and bootleggers, Tim has been around moonshine his entire life. His earliest memories were of helping his father hide moonshine in secret stash spots around the family farm."

The website describes Tickle as "Tim's right-hand man. Like Tim, Tickle is a native of southwestern Virginia. He is a hard-working still hand who loves moonshine, but Tickle's true genius can be found in the kitchen. When he isn't making moonshine, Tickle spends his time in cooking and developing new moonshine based recipes."

In addition to Tim and Tickle, Lawrence County musician Larry Summerton will perform and the Bud Light promo girls will be there.
