Jamming for a Cause

Jennifer Ireland

Soulful tunes and swaying strands of lights led the way to the main stage at Goodwood Jams on Nov. 7 at Goodwood Museum and Gardens. Spectators lounged on lawn chairs and picnic blankets or tapped their toes to the sounds of three lively bands. 

This fourth annual event welcomed Two Foot Level, Tishamingo and Leftover Salmon to the stage. Each band portrayed bluegrass and Southern rock influences, but with their own, unique styles. Guests nibbled on a variety of food truck cuisine and could partake from a cash bar or craft beer samplings from Grasslands Brewery and Oyster City Brewing Company.

All proceeds from the event will go to Goodwood Museum and Gardens educational and historic preservation programs. From a blanket canopied by stars and oak trees with a beautiful plantation home and Southern soul in the background, it was easy to understand the mission of Goodwood Jams.
