Great OT Jam in Greensboro, NC

Posted by dangibson on Monday, May 11, 2009

I attended a great OT jam last week in Greensboro, NC, at the Green Burro. It was the first one I'd been to in a ton of years. Can't remember when I've had as much fun. I didn't count heads (too busy playing) but I'm guessing there were about 30 people playing and maybe that many more Green Burro customers when came in to listen -- and applaud --  throughout the evening.  Even had some dancers. 

Lots of fiddles, guitars, a couple mandolins, and more banjos (five or six) than I've seen in one room for a long time.  Three upright basses showed up, too, accompanied by some huffing and puffing musicians -- it was a three-floor climb, afterall.

 Hats off to the Piedmont Old Time Society -- http://www.myspace.com/piedmontoldtime  and  piedmontoldtime@gmail.com -- for putting it all together and making a visiting Tarheel/Texan/storyteller/banjoplayer feel terrifically welcomed. Hats off also to the Green Burro who made their third-floor back room available and for their great hospitality.

The jams are held the first Thursday of the month from 7-11 p.m.  I'll be back the first chance I get.
