Thankful to all the musicians, singers, kitchen helpers, 50/50 ticket sales, and the audience who came out Friday night. We all enjoyed the (bluegrass) Banjo pickers immensely. The open jam was held at the Willis Gap Community Center, 144 The Hollow Road, Ararat, an affiliated partner with The Crooked Road, Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail.
