Marathon Jam Returns

Chapel Hill is again hosting the site for the 11th Annual Marathon Jam is a national day of service by musicians to benefit the Fort Bragg Fisher House.  Fisher House is “a home away from home for wounded soldiers and their families.” How does the Jam work? The Chapel Hill Jam is this Saturday, February 22, 2014, from One PM to One AM.

It will begin at 1:00 pm and continue at least 12 hours with some of the best music of the year.  Those in attendance will hear everything from Bruce to Bluegrass played by some of the best musicians in North Carolina. Musicians are individually sponsored to play the full twelve hours.  Last year, over $11,000 was raised in Chapel Hill.  Learn more from WRAL

You can come to watch, donate, support, jam with fellow musicians, or just sit a while and tap your toes.  It is a fun event and well worth attending.
