    Can't wait to do this again. When's the next jam? Also, does anyone know of a Brooklyn jam?

      Apologies; looks like there's a hidden hyphen when you copy that link; please try typing it in manually, or paste it into notepad and edit it, or search meetup for the phrase: "Oldtime slow jam". FYI, the 90 degree rotation is to foil the NSA's face recognition software - they'll probably come after the banjo players first ...

      Yes, that worked, Jake. Thanks.

    Thank you everyone for making my first meetup.com meetup awesome and I definitely plan on returning to the next event. In the meantime, since I am relatively new to the world of bluegrass, if any of you could compile a list of bluegrass artists worth listening to, and/or a list of common bluegrass tunes that will most likely be played at these events, that would be excellent.

      Patrick, Jake and Paul: Thank you so much for these recs. I cant wait to check all these out! I did catch Chris Thile at Carnegie Hall about a month ago and love all the different styles he covered - I own his Bach Partitas album - one of my all time favorites. I love "old-timey" and will check out the staples as well. It's all good!

      Thanks for welcoming my suggestions. And thanks for yours. I especially like Charlie Poole’s “Baltimore Fire.” ( http://www.youtube.co...­ ). Bizarre and innocent to make such a bittersweet song out of a fire. I hope to meet you all soon.

    If any chance you are canceling this due to low attendance, may I assume you'll post a note here during the day today? Thanks!

    I'd love to come. I work in Chelsea, but I didn't know this was happening and I have no instrument with me. Will there be a other jam soon?

    I'm so excited for the jam! Going to be a really fun time. I'm bringin' my banjo and a head full of songs!

    This is out first ever Bluegrass jam but it will be amazing. The space is lovely, the atmosphere will be welcoming and the music will most likely be magical. This is a low pressure jam, so all you have to do is show up!
