The Southwest Virginia Museum Historical State Park will host its next event in the weekly Lunch on the Lawn series Friday, July 6 at 12 p.m., featuring Joey O’Quinn.
Joey is an avid fan of our regional musical heritage and enjoys sharing stories about our area and its music. He particularly likes sharing music with young folks. He does so through his involvement as an instructor with the Junior Appalachian Musician School program. Joey also volunteers with the Southwest Virginia Museum Historical State Park. He plays banjo and guitar, writes original songs and is part of the local string band Poplar Hill Reunion.
The “Lunch on the Lawn” event is free and open to the public. Visitors may bring their own lunch or pre-order one from the Museum for $6 each. This week’s featured menu is hot dogs with chili, chips, potato salad, dessert and drink. Orders shall be in advance by 4 p.m. each Wednesday by calling the Museum at (276) 523-1322.
The award-winning Virginia State Parks are managed by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation.
