Bluegrass music / musicians / jam sessions?

Anyone out there in to Bluegrass?  Any regular jam sessions within a couple hrs drive of Geneva?  


Hoping I can find others in the area who share the passion!

Love it. Unfortunately, I don't believe there's much to be heard locally. But, if you find some, let us all know.


Until then, there's aways this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62db5rMc2ns&feature=related

Thanks Sacha.  I'm not finding anything on the ejma site about Bluegrass jams, although I admit my French is not so good so maybe I'm missing something?


I'm talking about Bill Monroe style traditional American folk music.

Found this site:  www.bluegrass.ch, which lists a few BG jams and shows, mostly in the Zurich area.  Hoping to rally the fans and put something together a little closer to Geneva.  Anyone?

Hi Nancy,


I know this is a little late but I play mandolin and I would like to get together and jam if you are still game.  Any banjo players out there?

Still interested for sure.  Not much of a picker, but can chop chords on mandolin or guitar, and sing a little.  Can host a jam session at my place if there's enough interest.  Ryan, do you know of any others?

Hi Fredcb71,


Great, lets catch up. When and where is good for you? 


I'm a novice on banjo, but I can also play guitar if I can get my hands on one.

Hi Matteo,  I'm no longer living in the GVA area, so unfortunately cannot join.  Maybe others here will respond.

Thanks Fred!


This thursday I'm not in Geneva. I'll be back the 29th of may. I try to come to ETM School because I'm curious about the jam session and it can be a good occasion to meet each other!


Ciao!
