Blue & Lonesome Jam Session with Lil' Rev
Come join us at the Mead Public Library in Sheboygan, WI, for a Sunday afternoon Jam Session focusing on Bluegrass and Blues Repertoire. All instruments are welcome. Please note---no amplification. Loud percussive instruments are discouraged. We want to hear everyone, after all!
Note: This is a paperless jam session, that leans towards the adv. beginner and intermediate ends of the spectrum. We prefer songs that are 2, 3, and 4 chords at best and easy for everyone to follow with singable refrains. Blues Songs are 12 and 8 bar variety. Lead a song, Jam along or just come to listen! No hotdogs or song-hogs please, we are a fair, welcoming and courteous bunch in Sheboygan, respectful of our fellow jammers. This is a quarterly jam; look for it again on March 15th (in the Imaginarium on the 2nd floor), May 17th and October 25th.
Award-winning Wiscosin folk singer Lil Rev is the group's fearless jam facilitator.
