September 30 ~ The Hammons Family Musical Heritage Celebration

After getting your fill of wild food at Marlinton’s Autumn Harvest Festival and West Virginia RoadKill Cook-off, the Opera House invites you to be a part of the “Hammons Musical Heritage Celebration,” at 7:30 p.m.

The Hammons Family carried on long-standing traditions of fiddling, banjo playing, ballad singing and storytelling at their remote mountain home in Pocahontas County. Their legacy continues and is proudly celebrated among today’s musicians.

In recent years, musicians from West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Virginia and North Carolina have taken to the Opera House stage to pay tribute to the Hammons family, celebrating their own diverse range of musical styles and talents.

Musicians and storytellers of all ages are invited to be a part of the celebration. Registration is free and available by calling the Opera House at 304-799-6645.

Tickets are $10 for adults. Youth 17 and younger are admitted free of charge. Tickets are available at the door and in advance at or at the 4th Avenue Gallery in Marlinton.
