Ends: 9 pm

Calling all acoustic musicians! The fourth annual Ashe County Marathon Jam, sponsored by the New River Chapter of the Military Officers Association, will take place on Saturday, May 18th, froom noon to midnight at the Ashe Arts Center in West Jefferson.  

Musicians will play or "jam" for 12 hours. Money is pledged to sponsor a musician either on an hourly basis or for the entire event. Every dollar is donated to Fisher Houses at Ft. Bragg and Camp LeJeune. (Fisher Houses are the military equivalent of Ronald McDonald houses for the civilian population.) Additionally, local veterans will be honored individually, their stories told, and then wrapped in patriotic quilts made by the Piecemakers Quilt Guild of Ashe County. Call the Arts Council for more information. Come as a participant or just to listen!
