Bluegrass Jam Sessions
Thursday, June 18
5:30 - 8:00 pm
The Holland Area Arts Council and the Hope College Music Department have cooked up another partnership idea!
You've loved the Brown Bag Lunch concerts, and now, under the leadership of Hope's Nate Roberts, we are offering the community the opportunity to experience American folk music with our new series, Bluegrass Jam Sessions!
On the third Thursday of every month, a House Band of area musicians will play in our Padnos Gallery for backup. We welcome you to bring your own instruments and join in. The first hour (from 5:30 to 6:30) will be designated specifically as a "Slow Jam," so musicians of all levels should feel welcome to come and play! There will be lots of sharing musical traditions, but most of all - lots of fun!
This program is FREE and we encourage all ages to attend. There is no requirement to participate in the jam - you can just come and enjoy the music.
