Yesterday we told you all about Celtic Calling in Charleston, but there’s plenty of other STUFF TO DO in Charleston and all over The Mountain State this weekend, so let’s just soak in this partial list of suggestions.

The Empty Glass has some great stuff through the week to tell you about.  Thursday from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM, Swingstein and Robin play fiddle and piano and sing swing and early jazz standards. Each week they donate their tips to a local nonprofit.  Thursday evening our old friend Kenny Booth (above) hosts a shred session from 10 PM to midnight and you find out more about it HERE. Friday from 5 PM to 8 PM Timmy “Courts and Friends hold down the fort at the Glass.  Sunday it’s the famous post-Mountain Stage Jam, hosted by The Carpenter Ants, at 10 PM. Next week they’ll have an open mic Monday night, and Songwriter Showcase on Tuesday. Other shows that have graphics are listed among the images below.

Please remember that the pandemic is not over yet. In fact, it’s sort of surging again. Many people who have very good reasons are still wearing masks, and many of us, understandably, are still nervous about being in crowds, masked or not. Be kind and understanding  while you’re out.

If you’re up for going out, here are a few suggestions for the rest of this week, roughly in order.
