* SUNDAY FREIGHT JAMS:

* November Freight jam is this weekend Sun 11/25 1-4pm (postponed from last
week due to the air quality conditions). There is also a 4th Sunday
oldtime jam (4pm-7pm) on the Starry Plough calendar.

The Sunday afternoon oldtime jam at the Freight is early
in December – December 9 1pm-4pm (followed by the Shred Sesh at the Starry
Plough 4pm-7pm).  

And if you feel like branching out, the Freight offers other jams –
e.g. Richard Brandenburg’s Bluegrass & Country slow jam (almost every
Sunday, with one free session per month, typically on the same day as the
oldtime jam) and David Matthews’ blues jam & workshops 4pm-6pm on Sundays.

And starting in January, Olivier Zyngier will be leading a monthly
swing jam on a Saturday afternoon 2pm-4pm (check the Freight website for
dates); the first 3 sessions (Jan-March) are free.
