For well over a decade, the Stage Coach Inn in Groton, MA welcomed pickers for a monthly jam on Saturday nights thanks in large part to host Paul Murray and the Boston Bluegrass Union (BBU). Since the Groton Inn burned down years ago, the BBU has been hoping to find a new location to revive these wonderful jams. BBU is now partnering with The Concord Conservatory of Music (CCM) to co-sponsor a new Second Saturday Bluegrass Jam in West Concord from 7:00 – 9:30 pm. This monthly jam is open to musicians of all ages and bluegrass instruments at the advanced beginner level and above. The fee is $5 payable at the door.
The purpose of our jam is for non-beginner instrumentalists to have the opportunity to play with other musicians, or come just to listen. Attending a jam is an invaluable experience as it teaches improvisation, tone, dynamics and overall musicality.
The jams will take place at the Concord Conservatory of Music located at 1317 Main Street, Concord (within the West Concord Union Church). There is plenty of free street parking around CCM. The jams will feature a rotating cast of hosts, and there are at least five separate rooms to jam in at CCM. *No jams in July and August.
