First Saturday Community Coffee House scheduled

BIG STONE GAP, Va. — The Southwest Virginia Museum Historical State Park will host its First Saturday Community Coffee House on Oct. 7 from 7 to 9 p.m.

Joey O’Quinn will serve as the featured host for this month’s Coffee House.

Joey is an avid fan of our regional musical heritage and enjoys sharing stories about our area and its music. He particularly likes sharing music with young folks through his involvement as an instructor with the Junior Appalachian Musician School program and as a volunteer with the Southwest Virginia Museum Historical State Park. He plays banjo and guitar, writes original songs, and is part of the local string band Poplar Hill Reunion. His very favorite thing about our local music scene is making friends, and he plans to bring some along to help him perform at Coffee House.

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.
