The monthly PineCone Bluegrass Jam is a “circle jam,” where musicians gather in a circle and play together. Facilitated by Russell Johnson, the repertoire includes both instrumental tunes and vocal songs. Whether you’re a first-time jammer or a veteran, you’re welcome to learn the tunes and play along, or just listen and observe! However, please note that this is not a learning jam (often referred to as a “slow jam” in bluegrass circles). Nonetheless, it’s a great place to meet other musicians who share your enthusiasm for bluegrass.
Please remember – every jam is different! This jam tends to draw a big crowd, and it is open to musicians of all skill levels. Please help us make sure that newer players feel welcome! Also, big, mixed level jams can be challenging. Patience and kindness are appreciated!
This jam will most likely be in the Transfer Ballroom. We will continue to follow City of Raleigh’s mask guidelines. Thank you for your understanding and consideration of everyone’s comfort and health.
The PineCone Bluegrass Jam meets on the fourth Monday of each month at Transfer Co. Food Hall in downtown Raleigh. Transfer has an outdoor patio (and patio heaters), parking, and food and drink options as well. A few chairs will be available, and you’re welcome to bring your own chair as well.
