Hi-

Could you post the most recent version of the song list? I went to the jam for the first time last week and would like to work up as many of the tunes on the list as I can.  Thanks!

Hey Erin,

It's Sheri Willis (beginner banjo player).  I keep forgetting to tell you that I have 2 songs handwritten on my copy of the slow jam list that need to be added:  Red Haired Boy and Redwing.  Thanks!

Hi Mark,

I am a guitar player and regular attendee of the slow jam and Bluegrass Rookies. Each week we discuss what we want to work on next in the Rookies group. Last Week was different versions of Angelina Baker and Jimmy Brown, The Newsboy. The next time we meet we are supposed to be working on Arkansas Traveler. Usually you come to class prepared to take, or attempt a solo break. It does move a little faster then the slow Jam and tends to focus a bit more on improv and solos. The slow jam is picking up speed and both are excellent. The best thing is you can try both, and have a great time doing it. I'll look for you next week! Please let me know if you have Bluegrass Rookie Questions, I'll put you in touch with our fearless leader, Stan.

Thanks for the prompt reply, Erin.  Will try to make it to a jam soon.

Hi, Mark,

The Bluegrass Rookies are a spin-off from the Slow Jammers. For those who are more familiar with the material (see the song list just under the header on the Slow Jammers page) and are ready to start playing breaks (solos) during the tune, the Bluegrass Rookies affords more opportunity to do that. While I've not joined them just yet, I suspect they play at a little faster tempo. Usually they start out playing with us SLow Jammers and then break off at some point, so come on out and you can check them both out - next jam on the 23rd!

It's been a while since I have participated in a jam and I am interested to know the difference between the Slow Jammers and the Bluegrass Rookies group...thanks!

Sure, it is ek_mphs@msn.com. And if anybody knows what the new songs were at the last session, I will add those to the list. I had to miss since I was out of town for my job.

Thank you for organizing this, Erin. What is you email address? I have some chord charts and stuff I can send for some of these slow jam tunes.

May 2014 Calendar & News

 April reflections: Brian Conway's concert at the Violin Shop was tremendous. I wanted to thank the Violin Shop for hosting the concert. Fred, Brandon and April made it such a nice atmosphere and the sound was perfect! I love listening to Brian's CD's but After seeing a live concert, I realized that he is truly one of the best Irish fiddlers there is in the world! He plays so flawlessly with great technique so musically. I liked it that he talks to…See More
