The Smyth County Jam is a music event, so bring your instruments and join the fun or just come to listen to some of the best Bluegrass, Old Time, and Acoustic music the area has to offer.
The jam is made up of an ever increasing group of pickers, singers, and listeners. On an average night, we may have in excess of 50 musicians show up. We have seasoned pros as well as beginning artists attend our jams. These are not free-for-all jams, so try to learn and follow our jamming etiquette.
The stage show is made up of various groups that are most of the time put together only minutes before in the back rooms. This really lends to the excitement as you never know what will happen on stage. We have entire bands show up from time to time and they are always welcome to participate in this open mic section of the jam.
Our goal is to provide a musical event that will showcase the various musicians and singers in the surrounding area while teaching the aspects of musicianship as well as encouraging the development of new talents while at the same time providing entertainment as a service to the community and the county.
