Local Jams, any interest?

I went to Cabin Camp - loved it - and was surprised by how many campers never play with other people. I love playing with other people - that’s where the fun is and it has always improved my musicianship.

I realize I am spoiled - I live in Raleigh, NC. There are plenty of pickers around here!

So I was wondering if there are any members living near enough-ish to me who never play with other people but would like to? If there are, let me hear from you. If we get anywhere from 6-10 pickers interested we can find a date that works and I can find us a place to jam.

Looking forward to seeing what this turns up!

Let me get in on this thread too. I’m not near Stephen in NC, but I’d like to see if there are any interested musicians near me in Thibodaux, LA. I’m in the same situation, I went to the camp and now I’d like to find some folks to jam with . Let me know if anyone is in the New Orleans/Baton Rouge/ Houma/Thibodaux area.

Thanks; Steve

Just in case you were wondering: Hogansville, GA is the halfway point between Raleigh and Thibodaux.

:wink:

– By the way Stephen, I was hoping you were on the forum. Enjoyed learning/singing My Home’s Across the Blueridge Mountains from you. It was a like a bonus camp song for me. Lets play it again soon.
