Bristol, VA (May 3, 2018) — Calling all musicians! The Birthplace of Country Music Museum will begin hosting a monthly gathering of local musicians for a community jam session starting on Saturday, May 19, 2018. The community jams are open to all ages and all skill levels.
“We are excited to be offering regular community jams at the museum,” says Head Curator René Rodgers. “We hope that inviting the local music community to be part of our museum programming will foster greater engagement between the museum and this audience and give local musicians a wonderful space for sharing their music with each other. These live jams will also offer our museum visitors a fun experience, either as listeners or pickers!”
The jam events have been organized to provide a space for local musicians to gather and pick, collaborate, share their experiences, and—most importantly—to have fun!
Jams will be scheduled for the third Saturday of each month from 2:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m., serving as a great warm-up for Saturday night gigs. Musicians are asked to bring their own acoustic instruments. The sessions will be held in the Learning Center at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum.
