Open Jam Sessions

Jams are held at the Bushwood Mill on the second Friday of each month at 7:00 PM and the last Sunday at 4:00 PM, weather permitting. Little or no experience required, just an appreciation of Old Time Music and a foot to keep time with! Call Lucy to confirm dates.


Traditional Open Jam

Our Traditional Open Jam is held on the last Sunday of every month, when it is warm enough to play outside, beginning at 4:00. The purpose of this jam is to have fun and focus on "Old Time Music" played in an "old time setting" with just the "old time instruments" passing along songs in that "old time way."


Friday Night Open Jam

Our Bushwood Mill Jam is held every second Friday of the month beginning at 7:00 PM. The purpose for this jam is also to have fun! We have been known to play a bit of Irish, Cajun, folk, blues, old time and country. At this jam we welcome a variety of instruments as well as a variety of skill levels. We share tuners, make room for music stands, and encourage everyone in the music circle to take turns picking tunes for the group to play.


Some Details

We have plenty of chairs. Snacks to share are welcome but no pressure. BYOB. Hope you can join us.
