About the Monthly Jams

The Society sponsors a free public jam session EVERY 3rd WEDNESDAY OF EACH MONTH held at the Lehigh Valley Active Life Center (formerly called the Lehigh County Senior Citizen Center). It is open to all folk music lovers of any age who play an instrument or simply like to sing along or listen to the music. All ages and skill levels are welcome to our jam! You will be joining Society members and guests for an enjoyable evening of folk music, bluegrass, old country, oldies and contemporary folk and sing-a-long songs of all kinds. Jam books are available to all who come. The books contain lyrics and chord diagrams of over 700 folk songs. Participants form a circle and each person in turn selects a song of their choosing for all to play and sing. You may also bring your own special songs. Our jam starts promptly at 6:30 pm and ends at 10:00 pm. Free refreshments are often served. Amplified instruments, except for bass, are discouraged. There is ample free parking at the Center.
