Jammin' at the Branch


Location: Traphill Library
Audience: Pickers and singers of all ages
Traphill Library will host jam sessions every fourth Saturday afternoons. Jammin’ at the Branch is open to anyone who wants experience playing and singing old-time standards at a moderately slow tempo and in a supportive, educational and fun jam setting. The primary emphasis is on participants playing and hearing basic chord changes cleanly and in time. We will also work on arrangements of selected material, and participants will learn how to begin a song, how to order solos, how to end a song, and how to communicate with the other musicians. Geared for beginners, these sessions are also open to experienced musicians who are welcomed to assist with technique and timing.
