The Education Directors at the BBU are excited to announce that our wildly popular Teacher-Hosted Jams have been expanded to both Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday and Sunday, we will be offering 35 jams, from beginner to advanced, including bluegrass, old-time, and swing jams! These jams will be hosted by some of the area’s top teachers and musicians, and we really hope you’ll join us on the Lower Level on Saturday and Sunday!
