The festival itself is still 15 weeks away, but we’re going to bring live jazz and blues to downtown Indiana a whole lot sooner when our Downtown Jam Sessions start on February 13 at the Artists Hand Gallery.
These are open jam sessions. We’re looking for all ages and abilities, with junior high and high school musicians playing alongside college music students and professional musicians. (If you’re brand new to jam sessions, there’s lots of advice out there on the internet, including this article from Teen Jazz: Getting the Most out of Jam Sessions.)
We’ll bring the rhythm section. You show up with your instrument (or voice!) and join in.
Not a musician? Come on down for music, coffee, art, and conversation.
Downtown Jam Sessions will be taking place every second Thursday until the Festival takes place, which means we’ll be down at the Artists Hand from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on February 13, March 13, April 10, and May 8.
Jam sessions are at the heart of jazz and blues. We hope you can join us as we continue this important tradition here in Indiana.
