Old Time Jam in Sautee

I ran across the Debut Jam of this event on June 27th in Sautee. I had been there the night before to see "The Buzzard Mountain Boys" and "Barefoot Creek", and learned about the jam from the host Steve Welsch.

This troupe of musicians played old time, clawhammer banjo style, contra dance music that is a predecessor to Bluegrass music. Rather than taking you back to 1955, it was more like 1855. It was a hell of a treat! Players were, Steve Welsch, Richard Averack, Walter Daves, Jeanie Daves, Lynda Averack, Debbie Welchel, Joe Welchel, Mark Baker.

And to top it all off, Charles Brasseale (770-652-2435) had some of the best Bar-B-Que I've ever eaten. Those of you from around the Lake Country will know what I mean when I say it was on a par with our former "Peach's Bar-B-Que". His chicken was tender and juicy and very smokey, it takes alot of close attention to avoid drying out chicken. It was delicious and the pork was just awesome!

We had a wonderful afternoon in Sautee. Thanks very much you guys, best wishes for all your future events, and happy pickin!
