An open community jam with the Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers will take place from 6 to 7 p.m.

This will be followed by a concert by the musicians from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. The minimum suggested donation is $10.

The event will be held at the Crook Farm bank building, 476 Seaward Ave., Bradford. It is sponsored by the Bradford Landmark Society and Southern Tier Country Dance Society.

The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers draw from old-time, bluegrass, rockabilly and swing music to create their high-energy Appalachian bluegrass sound. Gary Antol (guitar/vocals) and Libby Eddy (fiddle/vocals) founded the band in 2014 with a simple goal: write good songs, honor the music and take it to the road. Since then, the band has appeared at festivals and clubs across the country.

Hickory Fest will be held Aug. 16-18 at the Stony Fork Creek Campground, Wellsboro. The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers are slated to perform there at 9:30 p.m. Aug. 16 and at 8:30 p.m. Aug. 17.
