We meet Wednesdays between noon and 2 pm. The core group is guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, harmonica -- sometimes a bass player, plus whoever stops by -- we invite people to play, sing, or request songs. We're visible as you walk in the front door, playing in the Lobby to the left. No need to be a student at the School.

The jammers often include teachers at the school, adult students coming for a lesson, little kids just learning the fiddle, visitors, traveling musicians, and others who enjoy singing and/or playing. Most of those present each week are good ear players, but as we do a lot of songs from the Old Town School Songbook, beginners will also be comfortable using this for very good practice. We've had travelers from both coasts, the South, and Japan. If you find us through folkjam, please let me know! (And you'll also be finding the School's neat little Cafe, with homemade soups, scones, sandwiches and similar healthy menu items in our other building across the street).

We've been doing this weekly jam since May 2008 and look forward to continuing, usually including any day the School's 4545 N. Lincoln building is open, including breaks between class sessions. But if in doubt, send me an email: slandt@oldtownschool.org.

My tips on holding jams are elsewhere on this site.
