Monthly Theme: Changes

All singers & acoustic instrumentalists welcome to this free event. Various genres including folk, bluegrass, acoustic rock, blues, country, roots and hybrids usually represented. Small amps are OK if you need it to be heard—other electronics (like mp3 players with speakers) are discouraged. Chords and lyrics are helpful when we’re learning something new, especially if there are more than 3 or 4 chords. A drawing will be held among participants every jam, for a $10 gift certificate from the Cafe. Lastly, we ask you order food and drink off the menu and refrain from carrying in.

Bring along a favorite song or two, and maybe learn a new one. It’s a musical potluck with no cooking required. If you have a carol or something along those lines, a few chord sheets would be helpful, as those progressions are usually not that easy to figure out on the spot.

 

A note on the future of Second Sunday Acoustic Jam. 

For nearly 10 years, Scott Lowery has generously donated his time to organize this monthly gathering at the Acoustic Cafe. It must be the longest-running public jam in Winona right now–thank you, Scott! Now, with Scott stepping away from the organizer role, it’s up to us to keep it going. It is also an opportunity to evolve the jam into something a little different, or maybe even close the chapter on this all together.

Show you support by attending a jam this month or next. And bring your ideas! You are also welcome to reply to this message with thoughts. I have agreed to send out the email message and update the Facebook page for the next couple months. After that, it’s up to the will of our local music community to determine what happens. Hope to see you this Sunday!
