Grab your instruments for a community jam

The next community music jam at the library in Bryson City will be from 6-7:30 p.m. on Sept. 6 in the library auditorium or, weather permitting, on the library’s front lawn.

Anyone with a guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle or dulcimer (anything unplugged) is invited to join. The jam is facilitated by Larry Barnett of Grampa’s Music in Bryson City. 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 together.

The music jams are offered to the public each first and third Thursday of the month at Marianna Black Library, located at the corner of Academy and Rector
