If you enjoy bluegrass and are in the Columbia area, go by and check out Bill's Music Shop. We stopped by on a Friday night and heard lots of local talent from beginners to advanced players.This would be a good outing for the family with plenty of refreshments and no alcoholic beverages are served. A truly enjoyable experience.

I brought my wife, the banjo player, here for the Friday night show. We previously lived in Columbia and had been here many years ago.

I enjoyed the open mike night on Fridays. for $5 you get a great evening of Bluegrass music sung by local/regional amateurs. I love the relaxed atmosphere. Very family friendly(kids under 12 free). Food and drink served. Also, various touring Bluegrass acts will perform here-check the website for dates. Nice way to spend a Friday night,
