The instructors of Stecoah Junior Appalachian Musicians will host a Spring Bluegrass Celebration at Stecoah Valley Cultural Arts Center on May 19.
The JAM instructors formed the group “The Leftovers” and include Bill Pruett, Dwight Bradshaw, Karl Sutter, Bradley Adams, Larry Barnett, Sue Bullock and special guest Sonny Reighard.
The efforts of these JAM instructors and local musicians to preserve the Appalachian heritage and musical roots give cause for this Spring Bluegrass Celebration. Doors will open at 6 p.m., and the show will start at 7:30 p.m. In addition to celebrating these musicians and Appalachian heritage, the center will be showing their new state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems made possible in part by grant funds from the Golden Leaf Foundation. In addition, the newly expanded Schoolhouse Café will be open before the show and during intermission for a light dinner or snack.
