No matter your favorite spread of jam – we’ve got you covered.   

Starting Thursday, July 11, The Farmington Center will sponsor the Schoolhouse Music Jam every Thursday.

The night will begin with a potluck social of favorite snacks, entrees, or desserts at 6 p.m..

The gospel and country music show will start at 6:30. The listening room is in what was formerly the old cafeteria of Farmington School at 1723 Farmington Road, in the Farmington community of Mocksville.

The Farmington Center’s executive director, Melanie Cook, reminisced about the center’s music tradition.

“Music has been a part of The Farmington Center since the days of the old schoolhouse. We are thrilled to continue that music tradition with the Schoolhouse Music Jam.  We invite you to join us for the jam a – the place where neighbors celebrate, connect, adventure and give.”

Formerly called the Bo Tyme Jam, it was organized by Gerald “Bo” Messick in 2018. Having startedhein a Bojangles restaurant, Bo reflected on his years of organizing the music jam.

“I’ve enjoyed it – I lived for it. I couldn’t wait for Thursdays to come. I was dedicated to the people – there are some nice people here. Things will continue, and I will stay involved.

“Many talented musicians in our community are eager to get together again and play the music folks enjoy listening to.”
