WCU jam series continues with Crooked Pine

Written by 

art crookedpineThe 2013-14 First Thursday Old-Time and Bluegrass Jam Series continues with Crooked Pine at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 3, in the Mountain Heritage Center at Western Carolina University.

 

Crooked Pine was originally organized in 1974. The group played many venues across Western North Carolina over the years and evolved with new members, but eventually disbanded.

In 2010, however, Crooked Pine reformed. From its home base in Brevard, the band has been performing at festivals, dances and other events in the area and was recently featured in a promotional video created by the Transylvania County Chamber of Commerce.

The concert will be followed by an 8 p.m. jam session in which local musicians are invited to participate. Pickers and singers of all ages and experience levels are invited to take part in the jam session, which also is open to those who just want to listen.

Free.
