Summer Music Series with Bryson City’s own Granny’s Mason Jar on Thurs, Aug. 10 at 7pm

The Marianna Black Library continues its Summer Music Series with the bluegrass guitar picking of Bryson City’s own Granny’s Mason Jar on Thursday, August 10th, at 7:00 PM.    

Following in the footsteps of Doc Watson, Norman Blake, Clarence White,  and Tony Rice, Granny's Mason Jar brings together the talents of Jared “Blue” Smith (The Blue Revue, Bluegrass Lumber  Company) and Aaron Plantenberg (Commonfolk, Big House Radio) to continue the tradition of flatpicking, travis picking, and other traditional  acoustic guitar styles. A favorite at venues throughout the region, Granny's Mason Jar impresses audiences with their high-energy shows and impressive guitar picking, and this is your opportunity to see them in an intimate setting.  This will be a rare time to see Granny’s Mason Jar in an intimate setting, without the distractions of clinking glassware and a ball game on the television that other venues offer. 

This is a free performance and everyone is invited to attend.  The library is located in Downtown Bryson City at the corner of Academy and Rector.  For more information or driving directions call the library at (828) 488-3030 or visit
