Country musicians jam to the oldies at Starke Round Barn fundraiser

Marti and Darrell Seeley sing together Saturday afternoon
during a classic country music jam at the Starke Round
Barn east of Red Cloud with proceeds to benefit the barn.

WEBSTER COUNTY — Under the cover of a new roof and surrounded by a century's worth of agricultural and architectural history, visitors to the Starke Round Barn were entertained by music just as enduring.

Dozens of people came to the barn at Amboy, 4 1/2 miles east of Red Cloud just off U.S. Highway 136, Saturday afternoon to listen to several musicians from throughout south central and southeast Nebraska and north central Kansas jam together on classic country songs using instruments from guitars and mandolins to saws and a bucket bass.

The event benefited the barn. Money raised Saturday will help pay for smaller repairs to maintain the barn and protect it from the elements.
