Jam Session

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, “Footprints in the Snow” (key of C), participants jam together on a variety of other songs, too.

Facilitator Tatiana Hargreaves and special guest Miles Andrews will lead a few songs to get the jam started, then go 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. Hargreaves will be joined by special guest Lynda Dawson for this month’s jam!

For those who don’t play an instrument yet, Marbles will have a build your own instrument station set up in Curiosity Square.

Sign up for e-mail updates about programs and opportunities for youth musicians; or call 919-664-8333 x4.

About the youth jam facilitator:

Over the past eight years, Tatiana Hargreaves has been on the forefront of an up and coming generation of old time, bluegrass and new acoustic musicians. Since releasing her first solo album Started Out To Ramble in 2009, Hargreaves has toured with musicians such as Dave Rawlings, Gillian Welch, Laurie Lewis, Darol Anger, Tony Trischka, and Michael Daves. From being the second woman to place first at the Clifftop Appalachian Fiddle Contest, to her bluegrass fiddling on Laurie Lewis’ GRAMMY-nominated album The Hazel And Alice Sessions, Hargreaves has demonstrated her skill in both the old time and bluegrass worlds.

She’ll be joined this month by special guest Miles Andrews, bass player in the Chapel Hill-based bluegrass band Big Fat Gap.
