Dahlonega’s Appalachian Jams 2015

19 May
No, we are not talking about jams on toast. We’re talking about old-fashioned music jams on the public square that will get your toes tapping and your fingers snapping.
While Dahlonega is known historically for its gold, it also has a long tradition as a haven for Appalachian music. The recent Bear on the Square Festival highlights this tradition with a weekend of mountain music performances and workshops.
If you visit Dahlonega during the warmer months you might notice musicians with banjos, fiddles, guitars and dulcimers playing mountain music around the historic square.
The Appalachian Jam series started this year on Saturday April 25th and ends October 10th.
The jams happen every Saturday from 2 – 5 PM, rain or shine on the Gold Museum lawn. Look for the white tents or just listen for the music.
If weather requires, the jams will be moved across the street to beneath the covered pavilion on the Dahlonega Visitors Center Plaza.
The series is free so just come and listen/enjoy.
