We be jammin'

I was just kidding with the We be jammin' title. That's something reggae musicians say, but it is related. Jamming - playing together without prepared musical arrangements - is a pretty popular activity in Western North Carolina. There are plenty of opportunities to do it, too, though in an interesting contrast to the North, most of them are for bluegrass music. Here in Boston, we have the same kind of jam sessions, but they're for blues. If you want to see a good jam session in Black Mountain, I'd recommend the Town Pump, which has good players, friendly service, and more taxidermy than most natural history museums.
