    Join us at the March jam at Hoover School for music indoors and out. Our usual format: multiple jam groups from 1-5, open-mike performances on stage in the Hoover multi-purpose room starting around 1:30 and the Beginners’ Circle slow jam from 2-3. Blaine Sprouse photo At about 3:15 we'll have a concert by well-known bluegrass fiddler Blaine Sprouse. A West Virginia native, Blaine has performed and recorded with first-generation bluegrass artists Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin, The Osborne Brothers and Jim and Jesse, and legendary country artist Charlie Louvin of the Louvin Brothers. He has also recorded and performed with a number of contemporary bluegrass groups, as well as his own ensembles and solo performances. Come hear some great bluegrass! Here is the event flyer (PDF). Blaine will also teach an hour-long workshop before the concert (2:00-3:00), aimed at intermediate-level and above adults. He plans to explore traditional bluegrass fiddling as well as some great old-timey traditional Appalachian Mountain tunes, working on such aspects as improving tone, driving a fiddle rhythmically, and backup techniques in the context of a bluegrass band. For this event, jam+concert admission will be $15 for adults, and $5 for youths 17 and under (payable at the door). For those who want to attend the workshop, a limited number of combination tickets for the jam, concert and workshop will also be available for an additional $10 ($25 total for adults or $15 for youths). We hope you can join us.

    Peter Rowan is a bluegrass master. His musical roots go back to Bill Monroe. He didn’t just hear Bill Monroe’s recordings – he played guitar and sang lead with Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys in the mid-1960s. After stints in Earth Opera, Muleskinner, and the Marin County rock group Seatrain, he co-founded Old and in the Way with Jerry Garcia and David Grisman. Since then, he’s recorded more than 30 albums and earned six Grammy nominations and a Grammy. His classic originals include “Panama Red,” “Lonesome L.A. Cowboy,” and “Moonlight Midnight” – and he’s just released a new album, Twang An’ Groove Vol. 1, featuring high-energy live versions of traditional classics and some of Peter’s outstanding originals. “The entire band coalesces around a supple groove, suggesting a sound not unlike the Grateful Dead in full jam band motif,” says the website Country Standard Time, adding that the free form improvisation “all sounds in sync, a reflection of the band's competence and confidence.” Joining Peter tonight will be Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Nina Gerber, Blaine Sprouse, Mike Witcher, and Jeff Keana'aina. Get your tickets early – this should be a glorious musical celebration, led by a true master! Visit Peter Rowan's website
