The Blue Ridge Mountains and foothills of eastern Rockingham County have an amazing history of Appalachian Music development, with bluegrass music jams dating back to the 1730s. These jams are considered the bread and butter of a Shenandoah Valley music heritage.
Now all can enjoy, and even participate in (if desired), bluegrass jam sessions in Elkton. Every Tuesday evening from 6:00 – 8:00 PM from now through May 13th, and starting up again this fall, young and old, novice and experienced are welcome to jam at the Elkton Community Center. It is free and open to the public!
Wondering what a Bluegrass jam is like? Acoustic. Creating music by ear without written notation. 3-part harmonies. Instant performing art that has been going on in the valleys, mountains, cabins, garages, and front porches of eastern Rockingham County for over 275 years.
Bonus: Did you know that Elkton is the childhood home place of Patsy Cline?
