The Downtown Jam #13: Charles Hedgepath and Mourning Dove featuring Lisa Stubbs and Niel Brooks.

Once a month, 3 to 6 local singer songwriters walk into a secret location in downtown Greenville.  They only bring their guitars, their stories and their original songs.  They play an entire free concert.  We record it and play it back for you on-demand 24/7 beginning the second Wednesday every month.  We call it "The Downtown Jam" and it's another way to thank you for listening and subscribing to "The Stories of the Upstate  #gvlmusic
