Welcome to the Smyth County Jam Website.
In the past, we have had to cancel the Smyth County Jam many times throughout the early part of each year due to the inclement weather. Since it has become increasing harder to notify everyone due to the far reaching areas touched by the jam, we have decided to temporarily close it after the Christmas Dinner on December 19. The jam will resume on April 3, 2017. This was a very hard decision to make, but due to the fluctuating attendance lately, I feel that it is the right decision.
We would like to thank everyone that helps with the jam on a weekly basis as well as all the great musicians and fans who have donated their time and talent. Our musical family has grown to include musicians and fans from all over the world. I think that after running almost continuously for going on 15 years that a little vacation is in order. Hopefully, when we kick the jam back off in April it will again become the “go-to” jam that it was at its peak.
You can keep up with the jam on our website at www.scjam.com or by following us on Facebook. If you would like for us to email you when we start the jam back, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll put you on our mailing list.

Our goal is to provide a musical event that will showcase the various musicians and singers in the surrounding area while teaching the aspects of musicianship as well as encouraging the development of new talents while at the same time providing entertainment as a service to the community and the county.
The Smyth County Jam has really grown over the years and is almost solely responsible for exposing our area to the many great talents and people who have adorned our stages and audiences. It's like everywhere we've stepped, a new jam has sprung up. This is a testament to our success. As the old saying goes; imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.
We have an open mic stage show as well as plenty of jamming every Monday night. Both pickers and listeners are welcome at this great Bluegrass, Old Time and Acoustic Music Event.
