The Blue Muse Roots Jam will meet monthly at the Moore Library on Saturdays, 12:30 - 5:30 p.m. If you've been looking for the opportunity to meet and play with other musicians, this is it. No charge, no tricks or gimmicks, just bring your instrument, and your interest. All skill levels are welcome and all instruments (guitar, harp, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, bass, etc.) If you don't play but love music, you're welcome too. We'll all have a foot stomping good time. Registration is not required, just show up and have fun. For more information contact Bill at bluemuserootsjam@gmail.com or visit the groups' website at www.bluemuse.org.
