Appalachian Old Time/Blue Grass Music Sessions

The Old-Time Jam at Liam Flynn’s will take place on Tuesday from 7:30-10:30 p.m. This jam session is on a bi-weekly basis on Tuesday nights. Alternating Tuesdays we feature Blue Grass Sessions.922989_10152855426410594_1463157619_n-1

The Old Time jam is open to anyone who wants to play although this is going to be an advanced, “fast” jam. We’ll be playing old-time tunes up to speed. That being said, anyone is welcome to join the jam or just listen. My father Ken Kolodner (fiddle and hammered dulcimer) and I will lead the jam but others are more than welcome to lead tunes. We’ll just make sure things stay organized. For those of you who are beginners, I suggest you come on out, have a bite to eat or something to drink and at least listen to the jam. You’ll be surprised at how much you can learn just by listening.

The Blue Grass jam is free and open to those that love the music.

Django Mondays, 8pm

images-1Manouche Jazz sessions. Bounce to the sounds of the Django Reinhardt songbook performed live by Baltimore’s very own Hot Club UltraFox. Join in, play, dance!

Facebook event page

Jean “Django” Reinhardt; 23 January 1910 – 16 May 1953) was a pioneering virtuoso jazz guitarist and composer.Reinhardt is often regarded as one of the greatest guitar players of all time and is the first important European jazz musician who made major contributions to the development of the idiom. Using only the index and middle fingers of his left hand on his solos (his third and fourth fingers were paralyzed after an injury in a fire), Reinhardt invented an entirely new style of jazz guitar technique (sometimes called ‘hot’ jazz guitar) that has since become a living musical tradition within French gypsy culture. With violinist Stéphane Grappelli, he co-founded the Quintette du Hot Club de France, described by critic Thom Jurek as “one of the most original bands in the history of recorded jazz.”[2] Reinhardt’s most popular compositions have become jazz standards, including “Minor Swing“, “Daphne”, “Belleville”, “Djangology”, “Swing ’42”, and “Nuages“.
