NEWPORT, AR (KAIT) - Depot Days is rocking and rolling into its 19th year.

The free festival has expanded to two full days of music celebration.

Some of the performers include the Deltatones and The Memphis All Stars.

According to Depot Days Festival chairman Henry Boyce, those at the festival can also enjoy some living legends as well.

"What we're offering people an opportunity to still see those rock and roll pioneers in action, and they're still good," said Boyce.

Another highlight of the festival will be the dedication of a 100 year old piano that was used in a club where Elvis once performed.

Sonny Burgess will dedicate the piano at the rock and roll highway museum at noon on Saturday.

Burgess and other musicians will also be available to visit with fans after the dedication.
