BLUEGRASS JAM - Come to the Cooperage, Wednesday July 19th from 7 to 9 p.m. for am acoustic “Bluegrass Jam.”

All instruments are welcome, but please leave your amps at home. This Bluegrass Jam will be entirely acoustic.

All levels of players are welcome…young, old, beginners and seasoned professionals. If you don’t feel like being in the spotlight you can lay low and pick along while learning from others in attendance. Since bluegrass music is not written down, but passed from one person to another, it is a perfect opportunity for new pickers to learn how to interact musically with others, said Ryanne Jennings for the Cooperage.

This is a donation based event. The Cooperage, located at 1030 Main St., Honesdale, is operated by The Cooperage Project, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. For more information visit www.thecooperageproject.org or call 570-253-2020.
