Wednesday Bluegrass Jam
The Wednesday Bluegrass Jam in Beautiful Downtown Tucker, GA, Main Street, is up and running and is in fine form!!
The Jam is every Wednesday, rain or shine! It kicks off around 6pm and goes for a couple of hours or so.
Our intention is for this to be an open acoustic Bluegrass Jam for pickers, singers, and audience of all levels. Everyone is welcome regardless of your skill in picking, skill in singing, or skill in audiencing….
Feel free to invite others who you think would enjoy being in on this. Send them this note or send them my contact information and I'll be glad to talk with them….
We'll be sitting or standing around in a circle (this is not a stage show!) and each person can call a song or tune to sing or pick. Or you can pass if you prefer. This is a no-pressure group!
Restaurants and snack shops along Main Street will be open for meals or snacks if you like.
Hope to see you there….
Glad news!!! The Bluegrass Jam in Beautiful Down Tucker Main Street continues - even though we have lost our beloved Old Tucker Fountain where the Jam was held for so many years. !
Our outside Sidewalk Jams have been excellent. There are lots of folks walking around Main Street at that time in the evening and many of them stopped and sat a while to enjoy the music. I heard one of them say, "Yeah, now that's why I love Tucker…."
Rebecca has secured our welcome to play in the Mason's Park (right next to the Fountain, across the alley, where the Tucker Farmer's Market sets up). So, please plan on pickin' & grinnin' there next Wednesday - same time and almost the same place as usual. (Photos below)
That's a fine place to gather when the weather cooperates. However...
If the weather report slips and it gets a little soggy, we have options. One option is to meet across the street at the E & B Jewelry Repair Shop. There is a nice, dry, covered area with benches right in front of the store. It will work Fine for our Jam. Mr B has given us permission to use his covered store entrance if we need it. (Photo below)
Another option that we are working on is the Growler Time place in the middle of the block that held the Original Old Tucker Fountain. We can set up on the sidewalk in front of the Growler in good weather and inside when the weather turns. Beverages are redily available!!! http://www.growlertime.net/
With all these options we are kind of a moving target. For now look for us first at the Mason's Park, next at the Growler, then at the E&B Jewelers.
Hope to see you there,
If you have a song that you like but think others might not know, let's work-shop it. If you can print 4 or 5 copies of words & chords for those who may not be familiar with your song, that would be good. Or send it to me and I'll make copies and bring them to the Jam.
Rebecca says - All bass players, We have decided due to the size of the group we really need a bass. David and I both have one but would rather not bring it if someone else is going to come play. If you are planning to come you could let us know?? Even at the last minute, I don't leave house till 5:45 most days. Text me at 678 592 4334. If you want to play bass and don't have one, you are welcome to play mine any day, just let me know.
