Awendaw Green Barn Jam...

When we were here in May, a Barn Jam was always high on our list of "things we want to do" but for some reason it never happened. Well it happened tonight and it was so worth the wait.

The Awendaw Green Barn Jams are an outdoor, year-round Wednesday night original music showcase that get folks off their couch to enjoy and connect with others and support original music and the artist that make it. It is held in Awendaw, north of Charleston, under grand oaks by an old barn that evokes the Lowcountry in a uniquely hyper-local bohemian atmosphere on the grounds of the Sewee Outpost. It runs from 6-10pm every Wed night of the year and features a diverse assembly of music from around the globe. Try a wood fired pizza, the grill, or fresh local oysters in season and drink your own libations responsibly. $5 donation at door, all ages are welcome, BYOB, pets on a leash, and it is always a family friendly occasion.

As the evening got later, the audience grew. There were at least 200 music loving people there enjoying each of the unique musical acts that performed.

We dined on the wood-fired pizza and it was delicious.
We were completely blown away by the talent of everyone. This was just one of those nights that just has to be experienced to fully grasp its awesomeness.
And what was extra cool was that the owner, Eddie, let us camp in his neighboring eight-acre compound. It was us, a bunch of chickens and goats, and the musicians who had traveled to play. It was one of the most amazing and magical nights of music for us... a pinch me moment for certain.
