Jams

If you want to see what we are about, please come to one of our jams. No matter your age, or ability, our jams are open to you. You can play or just watch everyone else at the jam.

Bluegrass Jams

Pickin’ Party dates vary depending on other events.  Pickin’ Parties are held at random times. We request donations.   All proceeds go to the Charles E Stuart Memorial Fund which funds music lessons for kids who can’t afford them.  This is a highlight of a recent Bluegrass Jam featuring Jack Pearson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ccwUCKsHJI&feature=youtu.be

Irish Session

Irish Sessions are generally held on 2 saturdays each month, but not a consistent pattern due to weekend events, holidays, etc.  Sessions are hosted on selected Saturdays (see “Irish session schedule page” that gets updated periodically)
Mid Tempo Irish Session 1:15-2:45
Regular Irish Session (not slow) 3:00-5:00
Sometimes the mid tempo and the fast sessions are on the same day.
There is a seasonal break. (This year, in 2017, May 20th is the last session, but it picks back up in August when folks want to hang out in our airconditioning.) Sometimes there is a spontaneous announcement on Facebook about a session and/or Irish house concert (or film).
*Our 9th annual Irish Music Weekend is held November 9-11, 2017 “Save the Date”
