Jackson Area Plectral Society Votes to Remain in Casey Jones Village Year Round
(Jackson, TN) On behalf of Casey Jones Village, Clark Shaw, CEO of Brooks Shaw's Old Country Store, is pleased to announce that the Jackson Area Plectral Society has voted to remain in the Village on Thursday evenings during the Winter months instead of going to a local church for their weekly club meetings. They will be playing their famous old-time music inside during the colder weather at the Old Country Store, Music Highway Crossroads on the stage where Carl Perkins began his career in the 1940's and at Casey Jones Home & Railroad Museum. Shaw said that the members were excited to perform at the Train Station at Casey Jones Museum, which is a unique local venue where the community will be invited to enjoy the music and see a great Museum. The president of the Society is Donald Horne.
Shaw said, "We are so very pleased that the Plectral Society has chosen to make us their year round home. Our local, national and international guests love the live local music. The Society members are tremendously talented and we love sharing this slice of Americana with our guests. It's a perfect match for us. We strive to be a musical cultural center for West Tennessee and knowing that they will be here weekly year round is an outstanding addition to our Winter season."
The Jackson Area Plectral Society has been playing on Thursday evenings from April to October outside the Old Country Store for over 25 years and hold their annual fall festival in Casey Jones Village. It is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of old-time string music. Members participate in open-air jams composed of fiddle, guitar, mandolin, banjo, dulcimer, bass, dobro, harmonica and any non-electric instrument that preserves the sanctity of old-time string music. Casey Jones Village is located on the Highway 45 By-pass at I-40 exit 80A in Jackson, Tennessee at 56 Casey Jones Lane. The website is www.caseyjones.com . # # #
