Music: Monthly evening bluegrass jam hosted by GuitarTownCT Mon., Aug. 20, 6 PM

The monthly first Sunday GuitarTownCT bluegrass jams have become so successful that Chris Wuerth has added a new jam to the schedule. For those who need to twang community-wise more than once a month—or can’t make the Sunday afternoon events—we will now have a bluegrass jam (usually) on the Third Monday of every month from 6-9 PM. Admission to this jam is a suggested donation of $5. August’s jam is Monday, Aug. 20.

Players of all abilities are welcome as well as those who just enjoy listening.
