We serve a great selection of whiskeys, 18 rotating taps featuring local & international craft brews, and an award-winning menu of comfort food favorites & elevated pub fare. Known for our live music showcases, we host our long-running Old-Time Jam Wednesday evenings & our Bluegrass Jam Thursday nights, touring bands Friday & Saturday nights, Bluegrass Brunch Saturdays & Sundays, and our traditional Irish sessions Sunday afternoons & evenings.

We’re excited to welcome LAURA BLACKLEY & THE WILDFLOWERS back to @jackofthewood this FRIDAY 6/21 at 9pm with their “folk tunes with a rock ‘n roll soundtrack”!

LAURA BLACKLEY is a singer, writer & purveyor of high lonesome Appalachian blues and soul. A born storyteller, she has played in many bands, traveled countless back roads & interstates, and enjoys digging up old tunes & hearing the stories behind them.

THE WILDFLOWERS are a group of friends who make music together. Playing “folk tunes with a rock ‘n’ roll soundtrack”, their music borrows heavily from folk, country, & blues to create a sound that is distinctly Southern yet worldly, modern yet timeless.

LAURA BLACKLEY and IAN HARROD sing and write songs. Harrod plays bass, Blackley plays guitar. The band also features DORSEY PARKER on lead guitar and RICHARD FOULK & GABE ROHMANN on drums.

$10 at the door — get here early to grab a table and some tasty dinner & festive beverages!
