Bluegrass Jam Sessions Open To The Public Twice A Month In Winfield


Bluegrass jam sessions are underway in Winfield.

According to the Winfield Area Chamber of Commerce, bluegrass fans looking for a jam can find one in Winfield twice each month.

Local pickers Arthur Blackburn and Jeff Morrison will host the twice-monthly Winfield Bluegrass Jam Sessions every second Thursday evening at 7 p.m. for beginning / intermediate musicians and every fourth Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m. for advanced jammers.

The sessions will be held at Bob’s Place, 920 Main St. in Winfield, and parking is available on Main Street or behind the building.

The first session took place Jan. 12 and the next is slated for Jan. 28. The jams are supported by the Walnut Valley Association and the Kansas Bluegrass Association.

“Given that Winfield is home to the Walnut Valley Festival, we wanted to organize sessions that would provide a little bit of that same atmosphere on a monthly basis,” Blackburn told the Winfield Chamber. “Having them at Bob’s Place seemed like a natural fit.

“We welcome anyone to come and join us, whether you are a novice, a seasoned jammer, or if you just want to come and listen. Acoustic stringed instruments only, please. Ample seating, coffee, water and snacks will be provided.”
