News and Tribune briefs for April 12, 2012


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.  

Jensen will speak at library

To celebrate National Library Week, first time novelist Nancy Jensen will make an appearance from 6 to 7:30  tonight, April 12, at the Jeffersonville Township Public Library, 211 E. Court Ave., Jeffersonville.

Jensen’s talk will center on her November release, “The Sisters,” which was inspired in part by her own grandmother. “The Sisters,” which opens in the year 1927, is about Bertie and Mabel, two sisters living in the poverty stricken town of Juniper, Ky.
