Players of all levels, singers & dancers & friends are welcome to our monthly 1st Sunday acoustic music session.
Generally American stringed band stuff (Old Time, Bluegrass, Blues & Folk) and hosted according to traditional session etiquette. If new to this then take a peek at http://www.pegramjam.com/etiquette.html and while there also check out this useful resource for accompanying tunes unfamiliar to you (it is hoped that tune leaders will announce tune titles before commencing to play giving those with this book time to find them).
Hope to see you there :O)
