with concert by Blue Eyed Girl
The First Thursday Old-Time and Bluegrass Jam Series for 2011-12 will get under way at Western Carolina University’s Mountain Heritage Center on Thursday, Nov. 3, with a concert by the band Blue Eyed Girl.
The group’s 7 p.m. performance of oldtime music will be followed by an 8 p.m. jam session in which local musicians are invited to participate.
The three women from Asheville who comprise Blue Eyed Girl were raised in families firmly rooted in old-time music. Banjo player Annie Fain Liden grew up in Cherokee County near the John C. Campbell Folk School, and she now teaches banjo and creates handmade books.
