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. Brandon 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. Brandon covers the musical spectrum with Appalachian-inspired originals and even a few modern covers with a natural Appalachian twist that is always sure to please.
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 will be available for purchase.
