Jam Session

Calling all youth musicians who play guitar, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, or bass, and or who enjoy singing! You’re invited to jam with other young musicians in the area who enjoy playing the same types of music you do.

PineCone’s monthly youth jam is moving to Cary in 2019. These fun, friendly jams will continue to include some skill building, and will also provide opportunities for young musicians to meet each other and learn about bluegrass jamming. This month’s jam will be facilitated by Jef Walter and members of The Carolina PineCones youth bluegrass band.

Songs will be determined depending on the skill levels of the students who come to the event. More experienced music students have the option to come prepared with a song to lead, either an instrumental or a singing song where they sing the verses/chorus, preferably with only 3 or 4 chords throughout (for simplicity in teaching) – this is not a requirement to participate.

The first jam of 2019 will be in the Paul Cooper Studio at the Cary Arts Center.

Songs played at past youth jams have included:


  • Angeline the Baker (D)
  • Arkansas Traveler (D)
  • Soldiers Joy (D)
  • Whiskey Before Breakfast (D)
  • Liberty (D)
  • Old Joe Clark (A)
