New! Teem Jam! Rescheduled this month only so as not to conflict with Easter. Calling all advanced young players of traditional music! You are invited to a monthly advanced level traditional music jam for young musicians ages 12-19. The jam will meet every third Sunday of the month (except in April, when we will meet on the 4th Sunday to avoid conflicting with Easter) at Pacific Crest Community School, 116 NE 29th Ave., from 3:30-5:00pm. There is an intermediate jam that meets at the same time and location, hosted by local fiddle teachers. The advanced jam will take place in a different part of the building and will be more self-directed, but with adults available to help out as needed. The goal of this jam is to create a fun way for more advanced musicians to connect and explore making music together. All are welcome, provided you bring an instrument (or your voice) and some tunes to share. Thanks to the generous support of Bubbaville we are able to offer this jam free of charge, though donations and potluck snacks are gladly accepted. For more information or to join our mailing list, please email Sophie Enloe at sophiefiddles@gmail.com.
