The next community music jam at the Marianna Black Library in Bryson City will be from 6 to 7:30 p.m., Jan. 19, in the library auditorium.
Anyone with a guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, dulcimer — anything acoustic — is invited to join. Singers are also welcome.
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 can choose a song for the group to play. The community jams are open to all ages and levels of ability.
The music jams are offered each first and third Thursday of the month.
