The Old-Time and Bluegrass Jam series will feature the Chompin’ at the Bit String Band from Asheville at Western Carolina University’s Mountain Heritage Center on Feb. 2.
The band’s 7 p.m. performance will be followed by an 8 p.m. jam session, in which local musicians are invited to participate.
Performing “rowdy old-time string band music,” Chompin’ at the Bit includes Lindsey Liden, fiddle; Kevin Scanlon, banjo; WCU alumnus Christopher Farmer, guitar; and J. Grey Nelson, bass.
The events are free and open to everyone. Pickers and singers of all ages and experience levels are invited to take part in the jam sessions.
The Mountain Heritage Center is located on the ground floor of WCU’s H.F. Robinson Administration Building.
