*Session: A music session, traditional music session or simply session is a term often used to describe a social gathering of musicians. Sometimes a music session is referred to as a jam session. Much of the music at such events revolves around traditional music for the area or popular songs. A suitable venue might be a local hotel, public bar, village hall or private home. The events usually occur at regular intervals and weekday is normally chosen so that it does not interfere with paid weekend gigs. At a session musicians usually play or sing for pleasure and simply socialise with each other. Frequently the musicians are unpaid and the players and singers are under no obligation to attend. However, some musicians (usually experienced) are paid to ‘lead’ a session and to encourage others to join in. Leaders also help to ensure that there will be music for members of the public who might wish to listen without participating. The hospitality of the landlord is very important. Sometimes he or she might offer a round of drinks or tea, coffee and food. This small token of friendship is very often appreciated by musicians. – Wikipedia.
Traditional Irish Music played by a traveling band of Internationally known, local talent. If you know the style, join in. Everyone else, relax and enjoy the free music that encourages lively conversions.
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.

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.” Reinhardt’s most popular compositions have become jazz standards, including “Minor Swing“, “Daphne”, “Belleville”, “Djangology”, “Swing ’42″, and “Nuages“.
