Article about the McClurg Jam in SW Mo. by Jeremy Myers
Here is an excellent article about the McClurg Jam in tiny McClurg Mo in SW Mo where some of the best Ozark old timey musicians have played for some 25 years. Jeremy Myers is a frequent participant and he does a fine job of giving an overview. It's also a good intro to a fine magazine. I plan on subscibing myself now.

Bob Holt used to play here pretty often back in the day. His guitar accompanist, Alvie Doom still does. A number of the Ozarks well known traditional musicians play there or have played there in years past. CBS has done a news story on this jam as well which I have posted about early on.
So, check out Jeremy's fine effort.
