This Sunday, May 18th from  2 pm until 5....
At The Black Dog, 227  West Front St. in Stirling.
The ‘Amazing Jam’! Even more amazing music...
This will be the Amazing Jam’s third Sunday  afternoon playing music at The Black Dog in Stirling. The space works: drinks and food are good and  prices seem reasonable. We play music there for about 3 hours. We are welcomed  by both staff and the patrons in the lounge and restaurant. Our music is greatly  appreciated; people always ask to know when we would return!
Once a month in May and June on Sunday afternoons. This Sunday  afternoon (May 18th) then June 8th. Time is from 2 pm until 5.DSCF1670s
The format is a ‘song circle’ with the lead changing from person to  person among the DSCF1717sgroup. When their turn comes around, everyone  has the option to offer a tune or pass the privilege to their neighbour.  Depending on the music, the mood, choice of instruments, etc. some will choose  to support whoever is leading a song, others may prefer to sit out and  listen. 
In its previous incarnations the Amazing Jam had a thoroughly amazing  character. A very large part of this was due to the fabulous core group of  musicians (amazing characters, all of us....) who turned out time and again to  bring it all together. A number of us have committed to this DSCF1647s‘revival’: people you’ll remember from the  Amazing Jam in Madoc and in Marmora. We invite you to come out and join us,  making music with old friends; for sure, there’ll be some new faces too.
“Bring your instruments, your voices and your music. It’s  all unplugged  and it’s all good! Guitar, bass,  harmonica, banjo,  mandolin, ukulele,  fiddle, accordion,  flute, celtic harp – the list goes  on.
“There may be only 4 or 5 of us or maybe a whole room full of  musicians. A place for ‘first-timers’ and experienced  players alike. A  good bunch of people playing all kinds of music together.  People in their teens all the way through  proto-geezers. Maybe even an incipient-geriat or DSCF1831stwo....
DSCF1628s“The  blues does not rule. Any acoustic music from punk to polka!”
Hope to  see you Sunday afternoon in Stirling.
