Dangem Bluegrass Get-Together at Lisburn, 28 Nov. 2015

DanGem Bluegrass in Craigavon, Co. Armagh, announce in their latest e-newsletter that the next monthly Bluegrass Get-Together, incorporating jam session and instruction, will be held this coming Saturday, 28 Nov., at the usual place and time (the Lagan Valley Island Civic Centre, Lisburn, Co. Antrim BT27 4RL, from 9.30/10.00 a.m. to noon) and with the usual schedule:

10.00-10.30 Warm-up
10.30-11.00(ish) Break out time for beginners; rest of players, jam time
11.00(ish) to 12.00(ish) All back together

Howard Walker will not be available to give banjo lessons, as he is playing with the Down and Out Bluegrass Band;* but any beginners are still welcome to join in and will be helped as far as possible.

The DanGem Get-Together combines a jam session for those who are already active pickers, with the opportunity to learn for those who are beginners or just want to listen. DanGem add: 'Bring along your banjos, guitars, mandolins, fiddles, dobros, and bass, or just come along and enjoy. Look forward to seeing as many of you who can attend.' A location map for the Centre is on Dangem's website.

*The Down and Out Bluegrass Band will be providing musical entertainment at St George's Market, Belfast, on Saturday from noon to 3.00 p.m.
