Howdy folks! The legendary Baltimore Old Time & Bluegrass jam is now at R. House! All are welcome to play along in the jam regardless of skill level or instrument. Even if you don't play, you can come to soak in the scene, listen to the music and grab a bite to eat from one of the ten food stalls or a drink from R. Bar. It's THE happening spot in town for food and community. We're thrilled to be partnering with R. House! Learn more about the venue HERE
Every other Tuesday, Ken & Brad Kolodner will lead the Baltimore Old Time Jam from 7-10pm. The first hour of the jam will be a "slow jam" so anyone can hop in and play along at a moderate tempo. From 8-10pm, they'll kick up the tempo for the "fast jam." Imagine a sea of fiddles, banjos, guitars and more all swelling together in a chorus of joyous tunes!
On the opposite Tuesdays, Alex Lacquement & Lucas Chohany will lead the Baltimore Bluegrass Jam from 7-10pm for a jam featuring bluegrass songs and instrumentals. Come with a song or two to lead - or just show up and jam along.
There is an abundance of free parking at R. House next to the space or caddy-corner in the police department parking lot (available to R. House patrons).
Best of all, the jam is FREE!
