Clarkesville, GAGrant Street Music Room February 23, 2013 - 8:00 pm
Winter Jam - Clarkesville GA - Larry & Jenny Keel
Grant Street Music Room
583 Grant Street
The first "North Georgia Winter Bluegrass Jam" and festival (Feb. 22-23, Grant Street Music Room/Old Clarkesville Mill) brings an unprecedented all-star lineup of artists from across the Americana music spectrum to the banks of the Soque River.
Scorching acoustic guitars, blazing banjos and the melodic friction of bows on strings should make for a warm melodic glow in the midst of the Appalachian winter in this new two-day festival that will benefit both the Soque River Watershed Association and the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper.
The festival will reach a feverish crescendo Saturday night with internationally acclaimed guitar virtuoso Larry Keel taking the stage around 8 p.m., followed by the must-be-seen-to-be-believed sensory spectacle that is the Snake Oil Medicine Show. Friday night’s headliner is The Mosier Brothers Band, featuring the Rev. Jeff Mosier on banjo and Johnny Mosier on guitar.
The lineup of bands also includes local favorite and rising national stars BlueBilly Grit, the Packway Handle Band out of Athens, as well as the Chattahoochee Chain Gang, and Stop Drop & Roll.
Doors will open to the first Winter Jam at 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 22, and the music starts at 6. Tickets are $30 in advance and may be purchased at the Nacoochee Village Tavern & Pizzeria and the Grant Street Music Room, or you can visit
