The Friends of Rickman’s Store host an open bluegrass and old-time jam session every Saturday afternoon from late spring until December. Newcomers are welcome to play; the jam level is intermediate.
Rickman’s Store was built in 1895 and is located in Cowee-West’s Mill National Historic District (designated in 2001). The old store displays vintage store items and furnishings and the work of local artisans, photographers, and writers can be purchased as well. The store sometimes hosts additional mountain music performances and concerts as well, so check the store website and Friends of the Rickman Store Facebook page for details.
