American Heritage Music
The store is an incubator for local heritage music and dancing. Year-round you can count on music and dancing every Friday evening, Americana music every Saturday afternoon and a traditional mountain music jam every Sunday. Many Saturday evenings we feature an old-time dance or concert.
For a listing of upcoming events check out our Upcoming Events page. On music nights the store remains open late and we serve soup, sandwiches, ice cream and home baked goods.
Some of the finest old-time musicians around turn up on stage at the store, enjoying the energy and enthusiasm of an audience that truly appreciates traditional music.
The Friday Night Jamboree happens every Friday, rain or shine, all year round. The first hour is gospel music and this is followed by two dance bands. We post our upcoming schedules as soon as they are available, so if you see an empty slot, check back soon for updates.
There is no reserved seating for the Jamboree, and it is often standing room only, so come early for seat. Tickets for the Jamboree ($5.00) are only sold at the door. We open our ticket desk at approximately 4:45PM after we have had time to move all the store fixtures out of the way and set up the chairs.
On Saturdays we have our Americana Afternoon starting at noon, followed by an Americana Open Mic at 1:30 PM. Each week we schedule a different performer to play anything from blues, bluegrass and country to the American roots music of Ireland and Africa. For more information or to sign up for Open Mic contact Nora at 540-745-7834 or send an email. This is a free event.
Every Sunday from 2 – 4 pm, we host a jam lead by a local Old Time or Bluegrass band. First and third Sundays are Old-Time Jams and second and fourth Sundays are Bluegrass Jams. Most Sundays there is also a beginner jam upstairs to help those who are just discovering the joys of jamming. Please come and join us. This is a free event.
