Join the Market Square Jam with host band Indian Run Stringband. 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.
The Indian Run Stringband features hard driving old time music for dances and entertainment. Flat footin' numbers, waltzes, two-steps, and old time songs.

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.
There has also been some impromptu dancing and an occasional dance has been called. Dancers are encouraged and it is open to the public to come and listen for a relaxing evening outside at the Farmers Market.
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.
