Workshop Jam – September – Cx due to Covid

We are pickers and we love jamming.  Pickers who subscribe to our email newsletter will find out where and where our next workshop jam will be.  To find out for yourself subscribe.

On 24 August the government announced that Auckland will go to Covid-19 alert level 2 from Monday 31 August but gatherings of more than 10 are not allowed. This will be reviewed on 6th September and we will let you know what is happening then.

Workshop Jam – August

We are pickers and we love jamming.  Pickers who subscribe to our email newsletter will find out where and where our next workshop jam will be.  To find out for yourself subscribe.

The format is simple: we briefly discuss some aspect of music or jamming technique, then jam. We open this discussion because we want to help pickers improve by swapping tips and having a forum where you can ask questions of other pickers.

This is always informal, fun, no pressure, and a great way to improve your picking and to get to know other club pickers.

Bring an instrument and and if you are up for it, some simple bluegrass style songs that we can jam to.

If you could buy songs in a shop, there would be an old wooden second-hand shop just off state highway 2 in the Wairarapa. Facing the traffic would be a sign written in an curly font. It would read Bob and Kate’s Song Emporium

Those who step inside are richly rewarded with old songs in their original boxes, with others polished to a copper gleam, and still others tastefully restored or updated. Look among the gems and you might find some crafted by Bob and Kate themselves.       

This month at the Auckland Bluegrass Club it will be like Bob and Kate are walking you through their song shop — it will be enchanting, curious, exciting, sometimes dusty, sometimes gleaming, and always absorbing. 

Don’t be the city slicker who can’t bear to lift their expensive shoe off the accelerator.  Stop by Bob and Kate’s Song Emporium at the Bunker Wednesday 8th July.
