Marianna Black invites musicians to jam Dec. 16

Written by 

The Marianna Black Library will hold its next community jam from 6-7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 16.

Anyone with a banjo, guitar, mandolin, fiddle (anything unplugged) is invited to join. Singers are also welcomed or you can come by to just listen.

The jam is facilitated by Larry Barnett of Grampa’s Music in Bryson City. Normally Larry calls out a tune and its key signature, and the group plays it together, but there’s also a chance for anyone to share with the group a song they would like to perform. The community jams offer a chance for musicians of all ages and levels of ability to share music they have learned over the years or learn the old-time mountain songs.

The music jams are offered to the public each first and third Thursday of the month. Marianna Black Library is located in Downtown Bryson City at the corner of Academy and Rector. For more information call the library at 828.488.3030.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
