University School will host “Pickin’ in The School-Yard” on Friday, May 3, from 3-7 p.m. on the campus of East Tennessee State University.

This event is an annual fundraiser for the Junior Appalachian Musicians Program at University School. It will include a number of student groups, including members of the ETSU Bluegrass, Old Time and Country Music Studies Program, JAM students, and other University School students, who will perform Appalachian music on the front lawn of University School and in the gymnasium.

JAM is an afterschool music program that introduces students to the Appalachian music of their communities and their region through small-group instruction. University School is the first school in Tennessee to offer this program to its students.

Vendors will have food and items available for purchase. The suggested admission is $3.
