Jam Session

PineCone Youth Jam with Jef Walter & Tatiana Hargreaves

Calling all youth musicians - this is a great opportunity to learn to play music together! In addition to learning some techniques and skills specific to playing this month’s featured tune, participants jam together on a variety of other songs, too.

Facilitator Jef Walter typically leads a few songs to get the jam started, then goes around the circle to give particpants a chance to choose a song they’d like to play. Participants are also encouraged to bring a prepared song to sing and/or play with the group, but this is not required for participation.

PineCone Bluegrass Jam

Please note the date! Since the fourth Monday of December falls on Christmas, the December PineCone Bluegrass Jam will take place on the third Monday of the month (Dec. 18, 2017). Join in with friends old and new at IMURJ in downtown Raleigh! This jam welcomes all musicians looking for opportunities to play bluegrass music and all fans who want to listen and share in the camaraderie.

Some musicians gathered in a circle at the PineCone Bluegrass Jam at Imurj in May 2017. Fiddle players, guitar players, a dobro player, mandolin players, and upright bass player share a tune.
