Jam Session

PineCone’s Youth Bluegrass jams are just for young musicians (ages 18 and under) 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.

These fun, friendly jams will continue to include some skill building, and will also provide opportunities for young musicians to get to know each other and learn about bluegrass jamming. This month’s jam will be facilitated by local musicians Jef Walter and Sam Stage.

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.
