Covered Bridge Jams – My New Favorites
June 26 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
My New Favorites feature a mix of honky-tonk and Appalachian music that is authentic enough for purists and progressive enough for folks who are ready to hear Merle Haggard or the Allman Bros. played on the old time clawhammer banjo. Led by award-winning songwriter Jeffrey Benedict, MNF is danceable, fun-loving and funny. They feature top-notch fiddling from virtuoso Westley Harris, and sweet vocal harmonies from bass-player supreme Amy Benedict. Jason Carpenter, a one-man-band percussionist, rounds out the sound. My New Favorites have been featured at Merlefest, Bristol’s Rhythm & Roots Reunion, the Blue Plum Festival and the PBS-TV series, “Song of The Mountains,” and many other festivals and music venues in Tennessee, Virginia and North Carolina.
Covered Bridge Jams is a FREE concert series that takes place on Saturday nights at Covered Bridge stage during the summer months from 7 PM – 9 PM. This series features top names in local music including country, bluegrass, gospel, classic rock and more.
Several shops and restaurants are a short walk away to make a full event of your evening with us at Covered Bridge Jams. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy the tunes!
