The Jalopy Theatre and School of Music is a community arts center focused on traditional roots music from around the world. We showcase folk, bluegrass, country, blues and traditional world music. In addition to nightly concerts, Jalopy is both a music school and a vintage instrument store. Jalopy has an internet radio station, Jalopy Radio and its own record label as well, Jalopy Records.

Husband and wife team, Geoff and Lynette Wiley, founded Jalopy in 2006 with the hope of fostering a community around a shared appreciation of this traditional roots music, to support local and traveling artists, and to educate those new to this music and culture. Geoff and Lynette also run the restaurant next door to the Theatre, the Jalopy Tavern.
