Make sure you get it on the FHO calendar, people do check it. Also post it on the calendars at Banjo Hangout, Mando Hangout and all the other hangouts. Then put it on folkjam.org.
Check your local public TV and radio stations since they usually have community calendars where you can post it for free. Send a press release out to your local paper. Post a flyer in the local music shops and at the local colleges and universities, especially in the music department. And hand out flyers at the local jams in other genres, since many of the Irish Trad, bluegrass and OT players play in more than one genre.
Yes, I run a jam. ;-)
Good luck and have FUN! And if you're ever in Easton PA, come pick a few with us.

I appreciate the advice and will comply with all of it. There are several Jams around but they are 60 to 80 miles away. that's why I'm trying to get one started locally here in Jackson, MS

I got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout.
I'd like to come to Jackson, but my wife won't let me out.
Oh, I can't come to Jackson, I'm just a big talkin' man
But have fun in Jackson, with your South Jackson jam!

You may want to visit the pickin' at the D'Lo Community Center on the third Tuesday of every month at 6:30pm. I started this three years ago when I lived there and it is still going on. There are folks from Jackson, Brandon, Wesson, Hazlehurst and other areas around Jackson who come to it. I'm sure some of those folks would be interested in coming to yours if they knew about it.
Good luck with your jam!
