I will not be available to host the Wednesday and Thursday jams this coming week (May 15 & 16). For the week after that, the song of the week for the intermediate jam will be Gold Watch And Chain in the key of Bb (Wed. May 22nd), and the song of the week for the beginner jam will be Gathering Flowers From The Hillside in the key of G (Thurs. May 23rd). I will try to send out the song of the week emails early next week.
I invite all of you to join me in Weiser, ID at Weiser Banjo Camp for the evening jams on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of next week. (May 16, 17, & 18). We are in need of many guitar, bass, mandolin, fiddle, and dobro players, and singers, of all levels of jamming experience and ability (beginner, intermediate, and advanced), to balance out the large number of banjo players who will be at the jams.
Jamming starts at 7:30pm on Thursday. May 16th, 7pm on Friday, May 17th, and 8:15pm on Saturday, May 18th. There will be several different jams going on at the same time on all four floors of Slokum Hall, and, weather permitting, there will also be outdoor jamming.
Jamming starts later on the Saturday due to the banjo masters concert being held from 7 to 8pm, which you are also invited to attend if you would like to.
The Weiser Banjo Camp is held at the same location as the annual National Old-Time Fiddlers Contest & Festival. The address for Slokum Hall is 2235 Paddock Ave. Weiser, ID 83672
