CABOMA jams are held on the second and fourth Sundays of each month, from 2:00-6:00 pm, at:
414 N. Fillmore St.
Arlington, VA 22201
Anyone interested in CABOMA is welcome to come and visit a jam.
At most jams, you will find a wide range of skill levels, from beginners to professional musicians. We encourage participants to bring and play traditional, acoustic bluegrass and old-time music instruments.
CABOMA hosts a slow jam, led by and experienced CABOMA member, from 2:00 – 3:00 on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month, during the regular jam. The slow jam is open to everyone, but is focused on those new to bluegrass and old-time music. The slow jam is also a good place to practice jamming while learning a new instrument.
The following are examples of song you might hear at the slow jam:
- Old Home Place
- Big Spike Hammer
- Dark Hollow
- Nine-Pound Hammer
- Roll in My Sweet Baby’s Arms
- Red Haired Boy
- Whiskey Before Breakfast
- Angeline the Baker
