The next community music jam at the Marianna Black Library in Bryson City will be from 6 to 7:30 p.m., Jan. 5, in the library auditorium.
Anyone with a guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, dulcimer — anything acoustic — is invited to join. Singers are also welcomed to join.
Larry Barnett of Grampa’s Music will facilitate the jam. Normally, Barnett starts by calling out a tune and its key signature, and the group plays it together. Then, everyone in the circle gets a chance to choose a song for the group to play.
The community jams is offered for musicians of all ages and levels of ability.
The music jams are offered to the public each first and third Thursday of the month, year-round. 828.488.3030.
