The PineCone Bluegrass Jam at the Busy Bee Cafe welcomes musicians looking for opportunities to play bluegrass music! Bluegrass musicians and fans are all welcome to share some camaraderie at the Busy Bee on the second and fourth Monday of each month. While the PineCone Bluegrass Jam welcomes musicians of all skill levels to participate, it is not a learning jam (often referred to as a “slow jam” in bluegrass circles). However, beginners are welcome – the jam is a great place for musicians to meet and get to know other bluegrass musicians and to learn how the jam runs.
And please note: the PineCone Bluegrass Jam has moved to the main level in the Busy Bee Cafe! One of the primary reasons for the move is to ensure that the PineCone Bluegrass Jam is accessible to anyone in the community who wants to attend – hosting the jam upstairs has caused a physical barrier to some members of our community who want to be able to participate, and as an organization, PineCone works to make our programs accessible to all members of the community.
We are grateful to the Busy Bee for working with us to move the jam downstairs, and we look forward to continuing to work with musicians and the Busy Bee staff to make sure that all parties involved enjoy the jam. If you have feedback about the change in location, please call us at 919-664-8333, or e-mail Jamie Katz Court (communications -at- pinecone.org) with any comments, suggestions, or observations.
The PineCone Bluegrass Jam is sponsored by Terrapin Beer Company, which donates $1 to PineCone for every pint of Terrapin Rye Pale Ale sold during the bluegrass jam!
