Things are guaranteed to heat up this weekend at Penn’s Peak, beginning Friday with the Kentucky Headhunters and The Artimus Pyle Band. Show time is 8 p.m.

With roots that flared and faded back in the late ’60s and early ’70s, the band regrouped and refocused in 1986 with a new name and a new sound.

“I knew there was a true passion from the first rehearsal and the fact that the other three were relatives, and had spent their whole lives playing together, made it like a fast-drying glue. For me, it was magic from day one,” said Doug Phelps.
