in Silver Spring, Maryland
We considered having the Classic Country Jam this Sunday, October 9 outside, on Bruce's outdoor stage (because Ira Gitlin will be teaching Bluegrass Jamming inside); but the weather is too problematic -- so Dirk Johnson invited everyone to join his Acoustic Music Jam in Vienna from 5-8pm. It will be at "Neighbors Restaurant and Pub" 262 Cedar Lane, Vienna, VA 22180
This is an informal, open-format acoustic roots-style jam, which includes bluegrass, country, folk, folk-rock, blues, jazz standards, originals, and whatever else needs to be heard. All instruments welcome.
Welcome to the Sunday Jam. We're an informal group of musicians who aspire to keep American Roots Music alive -- especially classic country and gospel -- at gatherings on the second Sunday of the month in Silver Spring, Maryland.
The Sunday jam welcomes a wide range of musical abilities and acoustic instruments including (but not limited to) guitar, fiddle banjo, mandolin, bass, Dobro, harmonica, cello & autoharp -- as well as the human voice.
Our purpose is not only to honor the songs of Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Buck Owens, John Prine, Ray Price, et al but also to have an enjoyable afternoon of mutual support and musical discovery.
