With short stories and poems swirled into the mix, this performance will leave you feeling warm and maybe even inspired to put your own stories into song.

Jumpin' Tyme - Bluegrass Band
Saturday - February 25

Jumpin' Tyme successfully combines the sounds of yesterday with the music of today. They describe their group, as 'bluegrass with a twist' but it is actually much more. Their music and comedy provide all ages with wholesome entertainment. You never know if the next song will be from the 50's, 60's, 70's or yesterday's hit. Jumpin' Tyme's music is a joyful blend of traditional and popular styles. Their repertoire includes original and traditional compositions and incorporates the music of popular artists like The Eagles, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Merle Haggard, and Ronnie Milsap. There is a charge for this event and reservations are required.

The Missing Person Soup Kitchen Gospel Quartet
Saturday - March 11


The members of Soup Kitchen are often amused when listeners describe them as "those people who sing with no music." They sometimes take the opportunity to gently point out that they make music with built-in instruments, their voices. They are a human string trio that might be compared to bass fiddle, cello, and viola, except that the Soup Kitchen instruments tell stories, and the rhythm and percussion are made of words. There is a charge for this event and reservations are required.

"Ostenaco" - Cherokee Leader portrayed by Doug Wood
Saturday - March 18


During the French and Indian War, Ostenaco was a leader of Cherokee warriors who assisted Virginia military leaders against northern tribes allied to the French. His leadership provided a much-needed Indian alliance for the British colonial settlements in much of present day West Virginia and beyond. His allegiance with such Virginia leaders contributed significantly to the expansion of English-speaking peoples into what is now West Virginia. There is a charge for this event and reservations are required.
