Celtic Jam is going online! From Wednesday March 25, we will be using Zoom to get together and keep sharing, learning and chatting about tunes. We will still have guest artists from time to time. You don’t need any technological know-how to join, just click on the link that you receive by email just before 7:30pm each Wednesday.
To join the Zoom Jam, send your email to firstname.lastname@example.org and you’ll be added to the group.
Each Wednesday 7:30pm – 9pm (Melbourne, Australia time) from March 25, 2020 until….?
A celtic jam session is an informal get-together to socialise and share music with others, crossing all social and demographic boundaries. No sheet music or music stands needed, musicians simply come together and learn tunes from each other. It’s a popular custom that has stood the test of time.
Celtic Jam continues this tradition. We’re a diverse group of instrumentalists who meet each Wednesday night at Box Hill Arts Centre to play and share tunes we love, all by ear. And true to our Australian melting-pot culture, these tunes come from Ireland, Scotland, Australia, eastern Canada… all corners of the Celtic world. Music will also be given out at the end of each session, so if you have never learnt by ear before, don’t panic! If you have some tunes you love playing, bring them along to share. We play gigs regularly throughout the year.
Celtic Jam is always open to new players who enjoy the genre and are looking for a relaxed session group or ensemble to join.
Accompaniment players – bodhran, piano, guitar – get in touch with Judy first if you’re interested in coming along.
