Ripley River Jam comes to Ripley Library, April 26

Martha Jacob – Ripley Bee
The Union Township Public Library in Ripley will host its first Ripley River Jam Session from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, April 26 in the meeting room at the library.
Coordinator for this event, Harry Pedigo, said that the Jam Session will feature local musicians who will share their stories and songs during the evening of impromptu performances.
“This is going to be a really fun event,” Pedigo said, “It will showcase Ripley’s wonderful music community. While the musical backgrounds of Ripley’s local talent ranges from R & B to rock n’ roll, this inaugural jam session will focus on American roots music.”
Pedigo said that the Ohio River valley has a rich history of old-time music with some tunes even drawing their name from locations nearby locations.
“A fiddle tune by the name of “ Squirrel Hunters” for instance, draws its name from ta Union militia formed during the civil war,” Pedigo said. “There is a plaque outside of the Ripley Library which commemorates the over 1,300 Brown County men and boys who were part of the “Squirrel Hunters.
“Another fiddle tune titled “Over the Bridge to Maysville” draws its name from Maysville, KY and was allegedly written by an old-time fiddle player on a tobacco selling trip from Morehead, KY to Maysville. These tunes, along with many others, will be part of the repertoire on Tuesday, April 26.”
Pedigo said the library staff hopes that this event will be the first of many Ripley River Jams. “We think all music lovers are going to love this event as well as history lovers of old time music,” he said. “The Ohio River has brought a lot of history to the Village of Ripley through the years.”
Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. to allow time for musicians to set up and music lovers to find a good seat. The event will officially begin at 7 p.m.
