Weekend celebrates Jamboree at 35 plus more fun in the area

The Friday NIght Jamboree: 35 years

As the weekend approaches, Mother Nature is predicted to provide slightly warmer temperatures in the 40 for the daytime but return to freezing overnights throughout.

Best solution? Head to your favorite music venue and keep warm inside with grooving with the tunes and dancing the night away.

Thursday night provides Will and Jodie (aka Junior Varsity) at Buffalo Mountain Brewery or the Fiddlin’ movie premiere at the Floyd Country Store.

As Floyd’s Friday Night Jamboree celebrates its 35th year as the event with a worldwide reputation, with Larry Sigmon and Martha Spencer, Katie and the Bubbatones and the Tune Town Old Time String Band, the evening will open with a presentation on the history of the Jamboree at 6 p.m. before the Gospel Hour kicks off at 6:40.

Saturday showcases an Old Time Dance with the Twin Creeks Stringband (and special guests) at the Country Store along with the 90th birthday celebration of Rhonda Kemp.

All this and more at Dogtown, Buffalo Mountain Brewery and other locations. Bundle up to get to your event of choice, then shed your coats and gloves and have a good time.  And please be careful out there.
