Join the Market Square Jam with host band Indian Run String Band. The Jam is a weekly event that takes place Wednesday evenings from 8-11 pm at the site of the Farmers Market on Draper Road. The season will run from July 11 – September 26.
Banjos and fiddles, boards and bones in hand, the Black Twig Pickers dove into a living tradition of old-time music that surrounds their homes in Southwest Virginia and never looked back. Both scholars of the regional sounds and advocates of an ecstatic and highly personal approach to the music, the Twigs hold down local dance and bar gigs, play all manner of celebrations and every so often, hit the road.

Catering to traditional old time and bluegrass music, the Jam brings musicians together to pick a tune, enjoy some fun times with their friends and family, and take in all that downtown Blacksburg has to offer.
Whether you’re a musician or just looking for some great music on a Wednesday night, come out to the Farmers Market and enjoy a great time.
Something different this year, “host” bands. Every Wednesday night, in addition to the impromptu jam, there will be a host band to welcome musicians and get the party started. If you have a band or a group of musician friends interested in playing, sign on as a host band and get paid $100.
