Bluegrass Band performing on Counts Stage in Snyder Auditorium

The WCC Bluegrass & Old-Time Jamboree is held every third Saturday of the month, except the months of June and July, at 7 p.m. in the Snyder Auditorium, Grayson Hall, on the main WCC campus in Wytheville.

The Bluegrass & Old-Time Jamboree was organized beginning in October of 2006 by then WCC President Charlie White, who organized and hosted a similar event for many years at New River Community College. The event is now hosted by WCC faculty member Jason Settle. Each Jamboree features a bluegrass band and an old-time band. The bluegrass band usually performs from 7-8 p.m., and the old-time band usually performs from 8-9 p.m. Room is provided for anyone who wants to shake a leg and dance.

The event is free and open to the public. Donations are accepted to help defray the travel expenses of the bands.
