Attend the Open Bluegrass Jam at the Concord Conservatory of Music (CCM) on Thursday evenings from 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm to connect with other musicians, hone your playing skills, and have lots fun. Get coaching and guidance from CCM faculty member and mandolinist Max Anderson and other experienced guest musicians who lead the jams.
The Jam is open to bluegrass players at all levels – guitar, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, dobro, bass, and singers. Join Max as he calls the tunes, posts the charts, and leads the group (at a manageable speed) through the great repertoire of tunes and songs from the bluegrass tradition. The jam provides a terrific opportunity to play with other musicians. Attending a jam is an invaluable experience as it teaches improvisation, tone, dynamics and overall musicality. For those who don’t play an instrument but appreciate great music, you’re welcome to join the fun too!
The Thursday evening Jam continues now through May 26 with the exception of April 21st (spring school vacation week). The Open Bluegrass Jam is fee-free, though a $10 contribution is greatly appreciated to support the program.
