Formerly Redmond Slow Jam , now Knee-Knee Jam and will be held at Ridgeview High School in Redmond at 4555 SW Elkhorn Ave.

Thursday October 24th –  the 4th Thursday this month only, then we go back to our regularly scheduled 3rd Thursdays.

4:30 –   6:00 – Learning session – We start the evening working on technique, tone, tune, scales, tune keys, a                and other basic knowledge for playing the fiddle

6:00 – 6:30 – Slow level jam. We play tunes while other folks join us.  We sit in a circle (it’s called knee-to-knee) and move the tune choice around the circle.  Everyone plays along (as your skill allows) through every tune.

6:30 – 8:30 – Intermediate level jam. The tunes will move right along, probably not calling tune names, keys or chords; any old-time genera, speed should stay playable for most of the group.

8:30 – 9:00 – Follow up – After the jam we can work on things folks found they want to nail down or work on a new tune they heard in the jam.
