Special Deliverance

If you wanna pluck on your banjo without enduring endless Deliverance jokes, join in the down-home stylings of the weekly Arcadia Bluegrass Jam. You won’t be alone, as hillbilly wanna-bes from around the Valley bring their guitars, mandolins, fiddles, and other acoustic stringed instruments (as well as a couple of accordions and flutes) to create a country cacophony at this weekly open jam session hosted by Doug Fletcher. Moonshine and overalls are optional.
Sundays, 7-9:30 p.m., 2007
