On banjo, harmonica, dobro, bass, fiddle, and guitar, musicians from as far as 60 miles away gather to perform Rocka-billy, Country ballads, Gospel, and original compositions.

Anyone is welcome to come up to the microphone and sing. Some Fridays have guest appearances by experienced vocalists, or by a 4-year-old who sings with her pa-pa Bo, who accompanies her on his guitar.
