The Blue Note Grill

The Blue Note Grill

Join us in Durham for our bluegrass/Americana/old-time jam! Musicians of all skill levels are welcome, but this is not a learning jam – however, it will still provide opportunities to meet other area musicians and to learn how jams work. And listeners are always welcome to observe, too.

The Piedmont region of North Carolina has a vibrant and varied music scene, which the combined bluegrass/old-time/Americana jam taps into. This jam will meet on the third Saturday of every month. There is plenty of space in case musicians want to break out into different groups over the course of the afternoon. We hope that this combined jam will also provide opportunities for musicians to learn about and explore the similarities between these overlapping styles.
