There's an Open Mic every Tuesday evening at the Mecklenburg on German Street, and "Words and Music" on the first Sunday of every month at the same place. (Smoking is unfortunately allowed at this venue, so bewarned.)

Every other month or so, one can go over to Reynolds Hall on the Shepherd campus to listen to the taping of the Rumsey Radio Hour, Shepherdstown's answer to Garrison Keillor. The show airs on several dozen stations in West Virginia and other area states. It's been on the air for several years now, and is getting better and better all the time.
The town is also home to the Millbrook Orchestra.
The Upper Potomac Dulcimer Festival is held in Shepherdstown every summer. When I find out the 1996 dates, I'll post them, along with some contact info. You need to register early, as it has become very popular, and the number of participants is limited.
