The Southwest Virginia Museum Historical State Park hosts its special holiday First Saturday Community Coffee House Saturday, Dec. 2, from 7-9 p.m. Brandon Maggard serves as the featured host for this month’s Coffee House.
In these hills of Southwest Virginia, the art of Appalachian music has been passed from generation to generation, each taking a new approach different from their predecessor, and Brandon Maggard is no exception. Maggard is a third-generation Appalachian songwriter who obtained most of his inspiration from his family, who has been a pillar of regional music for years and years. He covers the musical spectrum with Appalachian-inspired originals and even a few modern covers with a natural Appalachian twist.
The First Saturday Community Coffee House is an open-mic event and is open to all family-friendly performers. All interested musicians, storytellers and poets should arrive by 6:30 p.m. for sign-up and scheduling. Admission is free to this program. Refreshments are available for purchase.
