Pickin’ is a weekly acoustic bluegrass and old-time jam sponsored by Augusta Heritage Center of Davis & Elkins College. It is held most Wednesday evenings from 6-10 pm (click on the Events tab and select “Calendar of Events”). Participants are invited to join a jam, to start one of their own, or just to listen.
These jams are held in Elkins City Park during warm weather (from early May until the beginning of the Mountain State Forest Festival). After Forest Festival, Pickin’ moves indoors to the lounge of Myles Center for the Arts until the following May. Pickin’ is not held during Forest Festival Week, because the park is in use and is not held during college breaks when buildings are closed. Neither alcoholic beverages nor smoking are permitted in Elkins City Park. In Myles Center for the Arts, neither alcoholic beverages nor smoking are permitted.
During Augusta program weeks (one week in April, five weeks in July and August, and one week in October), some of the students and instructors may join in the Pickin’ jams.
