Every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month bluegrass musicians and admirers gather together at Bee Spring Park to fellowship and share good music.
Charlene Lacefield, an Edmonson County resident, attended her first jam on Monday night. “I’ve really enjoyed it, especially the banjo," she said. This is a free event and anyone is welcome to attend and/or play. A.B. Webb, parks director said as long as crowds gather, this will be a year-round event.
Glenn Cross drives from Glasgow and has attended four or five jams and says he enjoys everything about them. Edmonson County’s Parks and Recreation said they want to offer free events at every park and is excited to offer the bluegrass jam at Bee Spring Park.
“Come see it for yourself and listen," said Dave Saling from Bee Spring. There has been as much as nineteen or twenty musicians at the jam--all singing and playing together. One of which was Ernest Whobery from Grayson County. Whobery had open heart surgery in February, and Monday night was his first time playing again since his major surgery. He plans to come back to Bee Spring and is happy to be playing again.
The next jam will take place July 10th at 6pm, so grab a snack from concessions and enjoy some great music with family and friends.
