Jimmy Driftwood Music Barn
Bringing you the best local talent around
Jimmy Driftwood sponsored the building of the Jimmy Driftwood Music Barn & Folk Hall of Fame circa 1976. Glen Branscum designed and constructed the building along with his sons and a few close friends.
Jimmy Driftwood willed the barn to the University of Arkansas, Conway upon his death. They archived his music and used the barn for classes in folk music, then put the barn up for sale at which time Glen Branscum purchased it. Glen and Nellie Branscum operated the Jimmy Driftwood Barn until his death on April 5th, 2011. The Barn is now co-owned by Nellie Branscum, Roger Branscum and David Branscum who manages and MC’s at the barn.
Glen and Nellie followed Jimmy Driftwood’s wishes by using local talent with traditional music. Folk, gospel, mountain, country and bluegrass music is performed by local musicians and friends from around the country.
The Rackensackers were instrumental in helping Jimmy Driftwood to preserve Folk Music.
