Pickin' n Grinnin' at the Long Hollow Jamboree

Traditional Music, Clogging, and Country Fun for all

By

Calling all traditional country music lovers! Have we got a place for you to go and enjoy some of the forgotten country music of yesteryear! The Long Hollow Jamboree only offers traditional country music with maybe just a few modern traditional tunes thrown in.
The Long Hollow Jamboree began over 30 years ago in this little country store as, what is locally called a 'pick and grin' also known as an impromptu jam session.

The first time we were there, we saw Tresa Street. She is beautiful, energetic and sings like an angel and has a personality to match.
On this visit, they had The Broken Spoke Band who was just as good. The Broken Spoke Band has a wonderful pedal steel player and their fiddle player is unequaled in talent and versatility playing ballads swing and bluegrass. The lead guitarist and rhythm guitars are just as good and the drummer didn't miss a beat.

You will find all styles of old time country music and dancing here. They call several square dances each evening and many two-steps as well. The dancers are very good and we really enjoyed watching them and some of them we recognized from the Grand Ole Opry square dancer groups. So, you never know who will be there or who will take the microphone for a song or two. Many of the Grand Ole Opry stars and musicians frequent the Long Hollow Jamboree as well.

The Long Hollow Jamboree is a place that you would not hesitate to bring the whole family to and you can always see a few kids enjoying themselves and dancing. So put on your clogging shoes, western shirts and hats and cruise on down to the Long Hollow Jamboree for some good, clean, high quality food and fun.
