Written by 

A community old-time music JAMboree is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, April 9, at the Fines Creek School in Clyde to raise funds for the Haywood County Arts Council’s Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM) afterschool program. A barbecue will also be available from 5 to 8 p.m.

The arts council and the Fines Creek Community Association are hosting the show, which will feature a cake walk, flat foot dancing and a square dance called by former N.C. Senator Joe Sam Queen, as well as a bluegrass jam with musicians young and old.

Jim Sisk, a legendary old-time musician, will receive the first Haywood Master Mountain Musician award for his decades in the local Appalachian music scene. Sisk, 86, is a Bethel native who recorded and traveled locally, nationally and internationally with his band the Carolina Country Boys.

Prices are $15 for adults and $10 for children for the barbecue and jamboree. Supper only is $8 per adult, $5 per child and the jamboree only is $10 per adult, $5 per child.
