Swan Range Jamming Sessions are back!

posted Dec 10, 2010, 11:09 AM by Mountain Brook Homestead Foundation
With the shift in seasons and darker evenings, the biweekly Swan Range Community Music Jam Sessions become all the more meaningful as folks gather to share music and good food. Though the jams have been held year-round since 2007, there's something about the winter months that makes the companionship extra special.

The jam sessions are held on alternating Sunday evenings, beginning with a potluck meal at 5 followed by the sharing of music until 8 or 9. The jam sessions are acoustic and non-electric. Folks of all abilities are welcome as we take turns going around the circle so everyone gets a chance to play or lead songs of their choice. The atmosphere is supportive, noncompetitive, and open to music of all types. Folks are welcome to just listen and relax if they don't wish to play or sing along, though they may get stuck with doing the dishes!

The jam sessions are held during the winter months at the Mountain Brook Community Library, 2353 Foothill Road, on the old Mountain Brook School campus. As a school campus, no alcohol is allowed. There's lots of room for parking and donations for the rental fee go to the Mountain Brook Homestead Foundation to restore the old Mountain Brook Schoolhouse next door to the library!

Refer to the Calendar for the next few scheduled jamming sessions and plan on joining us for some wonderful music!
