Benefit Concert held for Musician in Pikeville

On Friday night in Pikeville, musicians came from across the country for a benefit concert to raise money for one of their own undergoing surgery to remove a brain tumor.

For decades, Pike County native Joey Huffman is a name that has commanded the respect of musicians across the nation.

The benefit concert kicked off Friday at the Mark 5 building in Pikeville, full of music, auctioned items and other events, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Huffman’s aftercare following his surgery later this month.

Huffman wasn't able to attend, but family members say they were shocked by the support and thankful.
