Locopops Dessert Cafe, at 2618 Hillsborough Road, Durham, offers more than just tasty treats and coffee.
It hosts music jam sessions and other events as well. All are free to attend. Just pay for your popsicles, ice cream, baked goods or coffee.
Here’s what’s coming up:
Old Time Learning Jam
6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
This jam is focused on teaching and learning Old Time music on fiddle, banjo, guitar, and bass. Singing too! Instructors welcome donations from jam participants.
Calling all youth musicians who play fiddle, guitar, mandolin, banjo and bass. You are invited to bring your instrument and jam with your peers–other kids in the area who enjoy playing the same types of music you do!
The youth jam will include some skill building and songs will be determined depending on the skill levels of the group. We’ll learn a featured song at the beginning of each jam, then play a variety of tunes together. Participants are also encouraged to bring a prepared song to sing and/or play with the group.
