Bluegrass jam profiled in Gettysburg paper

Bluegrass jam profiled in the Gettysburg Evening SunThis past Sunday (5/13), The Evening Sun of Gettysburg, PA ran a detailed profile of the regular Friday night jam at The Arrow Horse in Gettysburg.

The weekly jam is hosted by Hank Janney, Arrow Horse owner, and bluegrass radio DJ for WGTY. He opened the store to offer antiques and collectibles, but has seen it develop into a bluegrass store since he opened 15 years ago.

“I had some bluegrass CDs to start with,” Janney said. “Then the bluegrass CDs started to take over and the antiques left.”

Those who go to the Arrow Horse for the jam sessions and to buy some bluegrass music call Janney an expert, but he doesn’t think so.

“I’m not an expert,” he said with a laugh. “But after following it for 50 years you have to know something.”

Read the full article – with photos and profiles on the jam and its participants – on The Evening Sun site.

UPDATE 5/17: We just got a note from Eric Trimmer, online editor for He wanted to first point out that while they do cover the Gettysburg, PA market, the paper is actually located in Hanover, PA.

He also wanted to direct our attention to the multimedia slide show that was created to accompany the article online.
