Next Meetup

Slower Bluegrass Jam at An Beal Bocht
We will be playing all acoustic instruments and will be friendly and supportive of each other and play bluegrass at slower speeds than we do at the Hot Bluegrass Jams. Guitar and banjo players should bring a capo. An elctric tuner is a great idea. A smile is really, really great. There will also be a tip jar and putting money in the tip jar for the friendly hard working organizer is expected. An Beal Bocht is an Irish restaurant and bar and has lovely breakfasts, lunches, and beverages, and they do appreciate if you buy at least something from them since we take up their entire back room for a few hours. It is a lovely space with nice ambience and no TVs. :)

What we're about

We meet up to play bluegrass music! I perform, record, and teach bluegrass music professionally. I teach mandolin and guitar and have also taught bluegrass jammin' at many festivals, camps, and privately. I recently have moved from my home-state of Virginia to Hastings on Hudson, NY and have made some musician friends, done gigs, and have been teaching students in this area. I have been running a Bluegrass Jam as well as a Swing Jazz and Gyspy Jazz jam. Folks are also very welcome to join who do not play music, but are interested in coming out to hear some bluegrass music sometimes. I have the regular Bluegrass Jam which can be some pretty hot playing and is fun to watch and to dance to sometimes. I also sometimes offer some Slow Jam Workshops for folks less confident on material to get to try easy songs at a slow pace. I may also start offering workshops on individual instrument groups like guitar, or banjo, or fiddle, etc. I teach mandolin and guitar to all levels and ages also so if you want a private lesson(s) message me and that is also an option. Here is my website if you want to see and find out more about me, some projects I have done, listen to/watch some video clips, get my direct email contact etc.
