Portland Casual Jams (for Musicians and Singers) Message Board › Country/Folk/Bluegrass Sign-Up Sheet

Country/Folk/Bluegrass Sign-Up Sheet

Group Organizer

Sign up here with your personal information if you're interested in doing some work on some tunes with this particular flavour.

If you're interesting in attending a Country/Folk/Bluegrass jam session, write down the following information, the best you can ...

instrument you play (or multiple instruments) - and VOICE is a valid instrument!
preferred musical influences in this genre (or a sample favourite song in this genre)

Additional information which is important to note down ...

can you provide ...
- equipment (P.A., mixer, amp, spare instruments)
- a venue (garage, large spare room, empty office building on weekends, etc.)
- are you willing to help others coordinate? i.e., are you willing to take up the torch and be a project leader on this little endeavour?
- Scheduling preferences for times to jam (i.e. when can you come out and play, not the times that are bad for you)


NOTE: I am NOT signing up ... at least, not quite yet ... so this is just an example -- and I am definitely not signing up to herd this particular bunch of cats! I have enough on my plate! One of you gets to take the lead on this! Instead, I'm just showing you an example of how to sign up with full information.


Rob "Bodhi" Wolff
Vocals, rhythm/secondary Guitar (not lead), keyboards
Preferred style -- Johnny Cash singin' Trent Reznor

- I have my own gear (keyboard, guitars), plus a P.A. and mixer
- I have enough space for about 8 musicians to jam with full equipment
- I would be willing to help coordinate
- I would prefer Friday evenings and Sunday afternoons

I am: Gene( aka "eez") Nelson

I like: classic country, folk, folk rock, bluegrass
I have:
--amps to handle 4 separate inputs, 8 channel mixer(ancient analog)
--acoustic and electric guitars, bass guitar, autoharp, mountain dulcimer, misc, etc
--space for ~8 in my living room, ~5 in my studio, mutitudes on the tennis court in back (don't know how the neighbors might take this, but they've bothered me enough that I feel obliged to give something back to the community)
And, well, I'm one of those loose moraled types that will make space/time for music whenever it may happen, except not before noon.

In my younger days I used to drink Sloe gin, but I've never heard of "Slow jam" (>;. Sounds like fun!

I started up the Celtic group, but since there's only 3 replies there, I thought I should also sign up here.

Good old folk music, I like Gordon Lightfoot, John Denver, Carpenters, many, many others... I have a "Blue Book" (is it officially called Rise up Singing?) or two...

- I have my own instruments, except no keyboard
- I have enough space for about 8-10 musicians to jam
- I would be willing to help coordinate
- I would prefer Saturdays/ evenings and Sunday later afternoons

Celtic is surely interwoven in country, folk, and bluegrass! I'd enjoy jamming with Celtic musicians! Let's merge!

Hi all,
Have not yet made a jam, but hope to soon....

I am Mark Hitchcox.
Guitar, vocals, upright bass (learning the upright, so "slow jam" would be perfect!)

I like anything from old Hank to Leftover Salmon. Been into Jimmy Martin's "Sunny Side of the Mountain" lately.

I have a small PA, a mic, 3 stands, extra 6 string guitar or 12-string.
I like Sunday afternoons, but Saturdays are good too. Heck, I'd show up on a Friday night as well.

This sounds like fun.

Tom Taylor
Drums, percussion

I have been playing in acoustical groups lately, so amplification has been minimal or non-existent. I play with brushes or sticks, depending on the volume you want.

I don't have a place to share yet, but my kids will be in college come this fall, so maybe then...
I would prefer Friday nights or Saturdays.
