> SOUTHERN INDIANA — JEFFERSONVILLE
Come out and jam Saturday
There’s a jam near 10th and Spring streets in Jeffersonville, but not the kind you might be imagining. Once a month, people come together to play some music, meet other players and participate in an old time “jam” at Jeff Guernsey’s Conservatory of Music, at 1120 Spring St.
Debbie DuPree leads the group through traditional fiddle tunes, and more contemporary tunes as requested by attendees. People of varied skill levels come to play songs they know and some they don’t. DuPree is an instructor at the music school where she offers lessons on several instruments.
The jam is from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and is open to the public. There is no cost to attend, but donations are accepted. Call 812-284-4428 or find the Conservatory on Facebook.
