    Default Jams in and close to Raleigh / RTP?

    Hello!
    Looking for jams in Raleigh / RTP area.
    I like the old time jam at high strung in Durham and bluegrass jam at Lorraine's coffee house in garner. Any others that anyone can recommend?

    I live in Apex.

    Thanks for the info. I'm in Mt Holly NC (close to Charlotte) but may have to make the drive. Looking for a session just to sit in & observe. Started mandolin about 4 months ago so still very much a newbie. Looking to learn & absorb from others.

    Just got back from seeing David Childers play a set. I do believe he still lives in Mt. Holly.

    Patty,
    Besides the Charlotte Folk Society jam (Google them) monthly, there is a jam at the Troutman Library, south of Statesville, every Monday evening 7-9 pm. Feel free to come. Shorter drive than to Raleigh.

    Phil beat me to it Patty. Come check out the Library sometime. It varies a lot in quality/atmosphere/etc. based on who all shows up of course, but my two trips have been fun so far. Last week we had 4 mandolins to 5 guitars!

    +1 on the Bynum General Store jam mentioned above.
    I have been going to that semi regularly over the last ~4 months and there is always a good, friendly crowd.

    Yes, he "opened: at a coffee house in Mt Holly a few weeks ago. Personally, I thought he was better than the "main event". Would love to sit in a session with him but seriously out of my talent range. Just sit & soak it up; think I could learn a lot just from watching.....

    Thanks for the info; got to Troutman for their session & enjoyed hearing them play & just observing.
    Bass, fiddle, couple of guitars & set of harmonicas. Great sound & very welcoming group
    Could tell they had been playing together for a while. Took time to answer my questions & didn't seem to mind that I was an obvious novice.
    I'm going back (this time I'll be brave enough to join in; I actually knew a couple of songs & those I don't know, I can listen & learn...)
