All bluegrass instruments welcome | No jamming experience necessary | You will be jamming the first class! | Friendly, encouraging, knowledgeable teaching. | Mistakes allowed! | Singing not required, but encouraged and taught. | Easy 2- and 3-chord songs, slow speeds.
Do you qualify? It’s easier than you may think! If you play guitar, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, bass, or dobro… you can be part of a bluegrass jam.
Leslie Dare & Susan West have found great synergy in working together to teach others the essentials of bluegrass jamming. Both grew up with music but after being musically inactive for many years, both joined the bluegrass community through their experiences at camps run by Pete and Joan Wernick, re-discovering the joys of music later in life. Leslie plays guitar and Susan plays mandolin, bass, and guitar. They are both active in the Raleigh, NC-area jamming scene, including regular participation with the Raleigh chapter of the Handsome Ladies.

A special thank you to our Media Sponsor: 580 WKSK The Farm!
