PICKIN 'N GRINNIN

Third Tuesdays of each month

This free event, held every 3rd Tuesday of the month 7-10 PM, is now in its 8th year.  We have grown from a small group of pickers in the back room to the use of two large front rooms with 16 usual “pickers” and about 20 “grinners”.  We have had quite a number of youthful musicians join us through the years and go on to bigger gigs.  

As always, we have a special dessert treat and refreshments, supplied by Cook Shack Caterers.  This event has become a regular stop for local bluegrass musical talent and visitors to play, sing, and have some “foot-stomping” fun. 

For further information on this please contact Dewey Botts (dewey@cabinfarm.com   919-539-7868.)

Free to all!
