JAM believes

that children who are actively engaged in traditional mountain music are more connected and better prepared to strengthen their communities for future generations.

We envision

a world in which all children have the opportunity to experience community through the joy of participating in traditional mountain music together.

Our mission

is to provide communities with the support and tools they need to teach children to play and dance to traditional old time and bluegrass music.

What’s Happening in the JAM World

Fundraiser Concert! Don’t miss it!

Don’t forget the instrument drive! Bring the dusty fiddles, banjos, guitars, mandolins, dulcimers, autoharps, basses (whatever ya got) to donate! If the instrument is playable, it will be distributed to a program in need. If it is not, it will be worked on or used in an upcoming project with local artists! We are also accepting donations of strings, capos, straps, cases, picks, fiddle rosin, and any other usable accessories.

For more information, please contact us. Check out the event on Facebook!
