What’s Happening in the JAM World
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! https://www.facebook.com/events/235373123321139/
