The sounds of live music and fellowship will echo from the walls of the historic Jacinto Courthouse this Monday as the Jacinto Foundation hosts the first-ever Pickin’ at Jacinto.

Set for 6 p.m. Monday on the ground floor of the landmark courthouse, organizers plan to make it a monthly event on the third Monday of each month.

Lisa Lambert and Scott Nunley and the Mallards of Mayhem will perform Monday evening. Refreshments including hot beverages, hot dogs, popcorn and more will be available at the nearby general store.

“We’re so excited. We just want people to come out and have a good time,” said Jacinto Foundation Director Charlette Foster.

They’ve got a heater on the lower floor of the courthouse to keep people warm and they’ve moved benches in for seating. Foster said they plan to have the event inside during these cooler months and then move it outside once the weather warms up in the spring.

There are also long-term plans for the construction of a new pavilion on the courthouse grounds which will provide a place for bands, the political speaking and other events.

Foster said they encourage everyone to come out and enjoy some classic bluegrass music along with fun and fellowship. Any local bands or performers who are interested in taking part are encouraged to call her at 662-415-2815.

“This is something for everybody and we want everyone to feel welcome and join in,” she said.
