Old Time Jam at Bull n Bear Brewery

There will be an open Old Time Jam on the 3rd Thursday of the month starting at 7PM.

Old Time music is the foundation for Bluegrass and Roots music. It is music that will get your toes tapping and put a smile on your face.

Come on down and enjoy a beer while listening to some good live music.

Do you play fiddle, guitar, open-back banjo, mandolin, or bass? Come and join in!
The first hour will be at a moderate pace and the tunes will be ones you either know or should know. The jam will be hosted by members of the Long Hill String Band and all are welcome.

What is an Old Time Jam? Unlike a performance, the musicians in a jam are playing as much for each other as for the audience. One player will start a tune, and anyone who knows it will join in. We will continue to play until we feel like stopping giving everyone plenty of time to pick it up. At this point, all tunes will be instrumental.

Parking is free after 6:00 P.M. at the City of Summit DeForest & Woodland Avenues Lot (40 Deforest Ave, Summit), which is right behind the Brewery located at 425 Springfield Avenue, Summit.
