Sessions Format Has Changed

Sessions will no longer be invitation only.  Greg will provide one or two session leaders on most Saturdays at 1pm.  Qualified students can join the sessions any time.

The list of all qualifications will be on the handout table in class.  Session students are required to have completed the first two years of Taborgrass or receive the green light from Greg to participate.

Please no more than 8 students per session.  No more than 2 like instruments between the students in a session.  And please don’t hog the sessions.  Give everyone a chance to participate.  Be courteous but also be opportunistic.  Your instrument may be needed on consecutive weeks.  There should be enough spaces available for everyone to participate at least every other week.

Cost is $10.

Open Mic this Friday night, October 7th at St. David of Wales.  

Jamming starts at 7pm and the performances start at 7:30pm. No sign-up necessary. You can “chicken in” at the last moment.

This is a great opportunity for you to share your music with us. It doesn’t have to be bluegrass. Individuals, duets, or bands: We welcome you all! 

You will gain valuable experience playing on stage with a sound system and in front of an audience. The atmosphere is very supportive and friendly. Two songs per act. 

Your donation to St. Davids is appreciated and will help keep the doors open. (Suggested donation is five or ten bucks). Hope to see you there!
