Celtic Jam Friday at Dudley's

...a free-for-all, where new people may show up not already knowing the tunes, but willing to just pick out chords and such on the fly.

Often someone will suggest (i.e. shout out) a tune or set, launch right into it, and everyone who wants to join in does.

Quiet instruments and beginners might find the pace a bit breathtaking and may feel overwhelmed at first. Part of the challenge is that you don't always know what to expect--some days you might show up to find you're competing with three fiddles, two guitars, an accordion and four bodhran players (of varying skill levels.) Singers and harp players may only get to be heard while everyone else is taking a beer break.

Celtic Jam features a wide range of instruments including: fiddle, uileann, (Irish) bagpipes, tin whistle, flutes, bouzouki, guitar, bodhran, concertina, and piano.

This crowd brings a lot of enthusiasm, energy and creativity to the rhythms of the collective band. If you haven't been to one, come alone or bring a friend/date. You won't regret it.

DREAM...EXPLORE...AND DISCOVER! (stop by here to see what I've been creating)!
