This event takes place either outside in the parking lot or in the lower lobby of Arts West, depending on the weather. All ages and levels welcome. BYOB with valid 21+ ID.

Free Admission – Donations Welcome.

February’s guest leaders: Hilarie and Mark Burhans, local musicians with plenty of expertise to share. They’re knowledgeable about many instruments, they’ve toured nationally with their various bands and have taught music lessons for many years.

March’s guest leader: Local musician, Morgan Hager. She specializes in fiddle tunes and waltzes from West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky. Hager plays fiddle, guitar and banjo, and is looking forward to sharing these instruments with String Jam participants.

PLEASE NOTE: String Jam will now also occur on 3rd Thursdays at 6-7pm prior to the Square Dances.
