Traditional music jam to be held
MARQUETTE — From 2-5 p.m. Saturday, the Peter White Public Library will resume hosting a traditional music jam in the Business Reference Room on the top floor of the library.
Bring a guitar, banjo, fiddle, bass, ukulele, harmonica, or just a voice, and join other acoustic musicians and vocalists for a community jam session.
Celebrate the traditional folk music of the Carter Family, Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan and others. It’s a chance to share your love of music and learn a new song or instrumental technique. A limited quantity of sheet music is available for those not familiar with the songs. Listeners and singers are always welcome.
