The Junior Appalachian Musicians Band was formed in early 2018 by Brett Martin, Director of the parent JAM organization, as a means of gathering advanced students to allow them to learn more about the traditional music of the New River Valley region. The band performs on behalf of JAM and plays mostly old time string band music. Current members include Sophia Puckett – Galax JAM (mandolin, banjo, vocals), Gavin Woodruff – Alleghany JAM (upright bass), Drew Morris – Galax JAM (guitar), Karlee Hamm – Ashe JAM (guitar, vocals), Sarah Hall - Floyd JAM (fiddle, vocals), Karlie Keepfer – Alleghany JAM (banjo, vocals), Kayla Archer – Galax JAM (mandolin).
