  3. Bill Jenkins & The Virginia Mountain Boys

    November 20, 2019, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Hampton History Museum

    Bill Jenkins and the Virginia Mountain Boys bring to life the authentic music of the Southern Appalachians. This old time music is a reflection of the lives of the early immigrants and their descendants who eked out a meager living in the hills and hollows of those majestic mountains, heavily influenced by Scots-Irish and African rhythms, it later gave birth to early Bluegrass and to many early country songs which you will hear in this era-spanning show. Bill Jenkins & The Virginia Mountain Boys are: Bill Jenkins, Guitar and Vocals; Ken Worrell, Guitar and Vocals; Clyde Bailey, Banjo; Steve Hunley, Mandolin; and Joe Gilley, Bass Fiddle. Beer and wine will be available for purchase. Proceeds support the museum. The event is free for museum members, $5 for non-members. Doors open at 5:30 pm. Seating and capacity are limited and first-come, first-served.
