    So far, I don't see any information about the Jam Session. Can you tell more about that? When and where it will be during the festival?

    What kind of songs does anybody want to play? I'm coming armed with Earl Scrugg classics, but if anybody has a song they'd like to play I'd love to learn it for you. But if anybody can play Little Darlin', Pal of Mine
    Cripple Creek
    Cumberland Gap
    Lonesome Road Blues

    then i'd be so happy to play with you!
