Strawberry Jam To Host First Saturday Community Coffee House at the
Southwest Virginia Museum Historical State Park
The Southwest Virginia Museum Historical State Park will host its First Saturday Community Coffee House on Saturday, March 4 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Strawberry Jam will serve as the featured host for this month’s Coffee House.
Buddy Delp and Jane Branham formed the Strawberry Jam musical duet in 2010. They truly enjoy sharing their songs of good times and the good old days with their audiences. Being from Southwest Virginia, they have been influenced by the rich and diverse musical culture of the mountains. They love to utilize basic acoustic music to express themselves through song, using combinations of instruments and vocals. Guitar, mandolin, and Native American flute are their musical instruments of choice. They have been playing music and singing most of their lives and live musical performances are what they enjoy most. The first Strawberry Jam CD entitled “Mountain Fall” was released in August of 2011. It was recorded at Maggard Studio in Big Stone Gap, VA. This musical work consists of 12 original songs written and arranged by Jane and Buddy. Audiences are sure to enjoy the combination of the delicious vocals and musical rifts of Strawberry Jam.
The First Saturday Community Coffee House is an open-mic event and is open to all family-friendly performers. All interested musicians, storytellers, and poets should arrive by 6:30 p.m. for sign-up and scheduling. Admission is free to this program. Refreshments will be available for purchase.
