Hammons Musical Heritage Celebration
September 28, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$10.00
After getting your fill of wild food at Marlinton’s Autumn Harvest Festival and West Virginia Road-kill Cook-off, the Opera House invites you to come be a part of the annual Hammons Musical Heritage Celebration. The Hammons Family carried on long-standing traditions of fiddling, banjo playing, ballad singing, and story telling at their remote mountain home in Pocahontas County. Their legacy continues and is proudly celebrated among today’s musicians.
In recent years, musicians from West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Virginia and North Carolina have taken to the Opera House stage to pay tribute to the Hammons family, celebrating their own diverse range of musical styles and talents.
Musicians and storytellers with songs or stories relating to the Hammons Family, and of all ages, are invited to be a part of the celebration. Registration is free and available by calling the Opera House at 304-799-6645.
