JAM has partnered with the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation to host an exciting day camp event for youth musicians at the Blue Ridge Music Center on Saturday, May 21! At this regional day camp, JAM kids from North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and South Carolina will be able to meet and jam with each other, go to workshops taught by master musicians, visit the Roots of American Music Museum Exhibit, participate in other Park activities, AND perform for the public that evening! But, we need your help. This program is completely free for all children and families. You can sponsor a JAM student for only $25. (Any donation will help, though!) JAM is the parent organization of 40 affiliated after school programs throughout NC, SC, TN and VA. Collectively, the JAM program model has reached nearly 1,500 children just this year with old time and bluegrass music education. We believe that children who are actively engaged with traditional mountain music are more connected and better prepared to strengthen their communities for future generations.
