BIG STONE GAP — Strawberry Jam will be the featured group to perform at the Southwest Virginia Museum Historical State Park on Friday as part of the museum’s Lunch on the Lawn series.
The event begins at noon and is free and open to the public. Visitors may bring their own lunch or pre-order one from the museum for $5 each. Orders must be made in advance (276-523-1322) by 9 a.m. each Friday.
Buddy Delp and Jane Branham formed the Strawberry Jam musical duo in 2010. The Southwest Virginia natives have been influenced by the rich and diverse musical culture of the mountains. Delp and Branham employ basic acoustic music via combinations of instruments and vocals.
Guitar, mandolin and Native American flute are their musical instruments of choice. They have been playing and singing most of their lives.
The duo’s first Strawberry Jam CD, “Mountain Fall,” was released almost a year ago. The work recorded at Maggard Studio in Big Stone Gap consists of a dozen original songs written and arranged by Delp and Branham over the years.
