|Outside the Station Cafe|
It’s still usually just Jake and myself, but the point is - we like it when others show up to jam! The unofficial schedule is every other Saturday from 10am to 1pm at The Station Café, 113 South Railroad Ave, Ashland, VA 23005. It's in the morning to align with the coffee shop crowd. Contact me directly by email for specific dates or join the Facebook group where we post updates and discussions. The tunes played tend to be old-time, contradance and Irish standards - fiddle tunes, breakdowns, jigs, reels, polkas - albeit with a slightly looser approach akin to bluegrass. Beginners as well as experienced players are encouraged to join in. Fakebooks and music stands are permitted. In fact, I bring lead sheets with the suggested chords for almost any tune I play.
