Nothing is more powerful than the impact of music on our psychology wellbeing. Music, is the type of thing that can instantly change our mood and at the same time introduce us to new things and new experiences. You can find all types of music in Pulaski County from beach music ushering the sounds of summer, to local rock bands and folk music. Being in Southwest Virginia there is also a strong interest in old time and blue grass music that echo the sounds of multiple generations of music.
Throughout the year there is a weekly Bluegrass Jam Session held at the Pulaski Senior Center where folks of all ages come together to play an instrument, sing, dance or just listen. Taking great pride in continuing and preserving the music of their heritage.
