Cabot, AR 72023, US
Everyone is welcome to attend one of our jams. Beginners to advanced musicians are welcome to attend. We usually have an audience and they make requests for favorites. Our jams are for the most part traditional bluegrass, gospel, and county music. We form a big circle and each person names a song and kick’s it off.
Everyone plays and takes a break when the person that names the tune point at them.
The First Monday of each month from 6 to 8 pm at the Cabot Public Library 909 West Main Street, Cabot, Arkansas 72023.
We have anywhere from 15 to 30 come to jam.
As we continue to grow we are looking at possibly dividing up in to two or more groups. The library has rooms available and we may go with that. The community room we are using now fills up leaving only standing room from time to time so we're looking at possible solutions

We are excited about pulling together players of acoustic instruments from the Hamilton area for a fun and relaxed time to make music. This is not a performance event, it is a genuine Jam Session. Everyone is welcome and everyone has the opportunity to bring music to share... no matter what your level of playing is. This gathering will be intentionally acoustic. With that said, you are invited to bring your guitar, acoustic bass, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, cello, ukulele, harmonica, djembe... anything that fits into the acoustic category. We will meet monthly, and hopefully share other opportunities for fun, music and friendship along the way. Hope to see you there!

SongFarmers of Big Island, Hawaii
Every Monday 11am 'til dark. Seaview Estates Pavilion currently. (5:30ish).
ALL Levels encouraged to come.
Thousands of song Lead Sheets (chord & word) spanning 4 decades of most styles available.
We expect a core group of 10-12 and an extended group up to 30. One timers (from around the planet) unlimited
Prior to joining Songfarmers, I created and began this group meeting at Ahalanui Park, Pahoa Big Island - every Monday, 11am till dark. We had met for 5 years. Very recently and currently on going, we lost our location to Volcanic eruption lava flow. Our beautiful ocean side park is now the major ocean entry spot for lava. We are meeting at a Private Sub division Park Pavilion invited by residents of the sub-division, Seaview estates, Kalapana Big Island Hawaii.
Aloha, from the Big Island of Hawaii. We are so pleased to be part of this organization, thank you for having us. We meet every Monday for close to an entire day of non-stop acoustic music, have been doing this for 5 years ( I did this at my home in New Hampshire for 10 years - The Barn, Greenfield, NH - prior to retiring). I started it because of active lava flow in Pahoa, we had daily "Civil Defense" announcements and never a mention of defending music (I know, not even related). It was just a theme to get folks to come together and make music in a beautiful gem of an off the beaten path park near my home in Waa Waa. The amount of talented folks here is astounding and they came - build it....... (just like the movie) - It has grown to be known on the entire island chain and players come when on Big Island or visiting from the Madland. Many beautiful, special, one of a kind things to see here in Puna. You must come - we play a huge variety of styles - nothing is not tried.
Come - we are better when YOU are here.............. Aloha. Visit our Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/Songfarmers-of-Big-Island-of-Hawaii-177641836174775/
