The Sunday Open Electric Jam is King Street's longest standing tradition. The house band leads things off at 6:30 and then invites guests up to the stage to join them. In a town bursting will musical talent, you never know who might show up, but one thing is guaranteed - an evening of incredible music. The jam is free and open to the public.
Located in Transylvania County, Mountain School of Strings is committed to providing affordable string music lessons and classes for all who are interested. They are able to do this through donations and contributions from their generous supporters. Research indicates that music education gives children an edge when it comes to self-esteem, personal motivation and even academic success. Their founder, Ellen Ray Lee, put it best, “There can be no measurement on what music does for the child’s soul and peace of mind.”
Join us anytime between 3:30 and 10:00 on June 19th to see what this program is capable of. This event is free and open to the public. Please consider making a donation to help the program continue its mission.

Jon Stickley Trio is a genre-defying and cinematic instrumental trio who’s deep grooves, innovative flatpicking and sultry-spacy violin moves the listener’s head, heart, and feet. “It’s not your father’s acoustic-guitar music, Instead Stickley’s Martin churns out a mixture of bluegrass, Chuck Berry, metal, prog, grunge, and assorted other genres—all thoroughly integrated into a personal style,” -Guitar Player Magazine. Premier Guitar says, “Stickley’s trio… is not a traditional bluegrass group by any means… they are just nimble and ambitious enough to navigate EDM-style breakbeats as effortlessly as the old timey standard ‘Blackberry Blossom. With inspiration ranging from Green Day to Duran Duran, Tony Rice, Nirvana, The Dead, Grisman and beyond, the Trio is making waves with their unique sound. “In a time when a lot of instrumental music feels more like math than art, Jon Stickley Trio reminds us of the pure joy that can be created and shared through music,” -Anders Beck (Greensky BG)
