PineCone Bluegrass Jam

The PineCone Bluegrass Jam welcomes all musicians looking for opportunities to play bluegrass music and all fans who want to listen and share in the camaraderie! 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.

Shape Note Sing

Shape note singing began in Protestant churches in New England in America's early years, and it survived in the rural South and became recognized as an American art form in the 1960s. Today, local singers still gather twice a month in the Triangle to share the music and fellowship of the Shape Note Sing. No prior experience is necessary to participate - beginners and experienced singers are all welcome.

The second floor of the Hibernian is also accessible via an elevator.
