Freight Hoppers featured at WCU’s Thursday night Jam

Written by 

The First Thursday Old-Time and Bluegrass Jam Session Series at Western Carolina University’s Mountain Heritage Center will continue Thursday, Feb. 3, with a concert by the Freight Hoppers.

The performance will be followed by a jam session with local musicians invited to participate.

The Freight Hoppers was organized by fiddler David Bass and banjo player Frank Lee in 1992. The band recorded two albums and gained attention after they were featured on National Public Radio’s “A Prairie Home Companion” in 1996. After a five-year hiatus, the Freight Hoppers began performing again in 2007, and the band is now composed of original members Bass and Lee along with guitarist Isaac Deal and bass player Bradley Adams.

Free. 828.227.7129.
