The Hammons Family Musical Heritage Celebration returns to the Opera House, Saturday, September 24 at 7:30 p.m.
This is an event dedicated to highlighting the Hammons’ family legacy within Pocahontas County and their contributions to mountain music. Community members and old-time musicians who carry on this legacy are invited to sign up to perform or tell stories during the evening. The Hammons Family carried on long-standing traditions of fiddling, banjo playing, ballad singing, and storytelling at their remote mountain home in Pocahontas County. In recent years, musicians from West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and North Carolina have taken to the Opera House stage to pay tribute to the Hammons family, celebrating their own diverse range of musical styles and talents.
