PineCone is teaming up with The Blue Note Grill to host a monthly bluegrass/Americana/old time jam in Durham! The Piedmont region of North Carolina has a vibrant and varied music scene, which the combined bluegrass/old time/Americana jam taps into. This jam will meet on the third Saturday of every month (except in September, when it will meet on the fourth Sunday). There is plenty of space in case musicians want to break out into different groups over the course of the afternoon. We hope that this combined jam will also provide opportunities for musicians to learn about and explore the similarities between these overlapping styles.
Musicians of all skill levels are welcome, but this is not a learning jam – however, it will still provide opportunities to meet other area musicians and to learn how jams work. And listeners are always welcome to observe, too.
Blue Note has on site parking right behind the old train trestle. After 5 p.m., visitors can also use the Erwin Oil lot. There are lots of other parking options in the neighborhood, including on the street. Accessible parking: there is a spot next to the beer garden right at the sidewalk. It’s on the right just as you pull into the parking lot.
