to Folkjam, the World Wide Jam Session Network
In the old days, you just had to know somebody who knows
somebody. Now you can find every jam session in the world, and still not
need to know anyone! This community site provides information on acoustic Bluegrass,
Old-Time, Irish and fiddle jams.
Features of this online resource include:
Jam session locator. Find local, national, or worldwide jam sessions that
have been listed on the site. Define a radius of miles around a particular
city and view a list of all sessions in the area. Also very conveniently viewable in a calendar format.
Another feature lets you create a flyer of the jam list to
print and handout at your next event. Other listings include: single
session jams, music camps, workshops, and festivals.
To enter a listing requires a free registration process.
The entries on the site are contributed and maintained entirely by the
musicians from the local communities that come together to play music.
In addition to the event listings, folkjam.org also offers
a directory of Groups for musicians who want to join and keep each other
posted on their happenings, and a Forum, where subjects from Tune lists,
to session etiquette can be completely discussed ad infinitum.
Always remember, "Play well with others."
