Jam Sessions
Jam Sessions:
Jam sessions are usually on Sundays, but are held on other days of the week as well.  
Come out and support these folks.  You may get performers up there that range from Aunt Sadie to Taylor Swift.  You just never know, but WOW do we professionals ever get blown away several times a year, by just being there at the right time to hear someone new.  
If you’ve never been to a jam session, you owe it to yourself to come and enjoy the talent just one time whether it is country, blues, jazz or bluegrass or whatever it is these folks want to perform for you.  Not only do you get the opportunity to enjoy the music, but can take usually a Sunday early afternoon or evening to enjoy music, dancing, good food, favorite beverages and being around some wonderful people.
We have more good talent right here in our Northwest neighborhood than most localities throughout the United States.  These musicians, some old duffers and many newcomers to the music business need folks to come out and hoot and holler for them a few times.  
Several of the younger performers have started at these jam sessions and went on to recording contracts.  
All musicians deserve hugs and just coming in and saying hi helps a lot.  
Applauding and smiles are a big help.  Musicians in general have a bad reputation. Yes, there are a few who deserve that, but the vast majority of them have spent thousands of hours to perfect their music skills, enjoy what they are doing and love to entertain.  Singer or instrumentalist, they pour their hearts out all over the dance floor trying to tell a story or putting out feelings and in many cases the folks just stomp all over ‘em.  So pay attention to these entertainers and give ‘em your warm and welcome support.   Back to top

**  Invitational for Little Red Barn

Please plan on asking the band leader about getting up to play or sing.  

Do not bring instruments in unless you have been invited.  This place is not large enough to have guitar cases or even harmonica cases lined up against the wall.
