    Default Lakewood Colorado area?

    Hi, I am a fairly novice player but love the mandolin. It would be of great benefit to my playing to do so with others. Any jams or possibly reasonably priced lessons in my area?
    I want to play all styles but especially Celtic, Blues ,Charo, Arabic, etc.
    Thanks!

    Check out "Swallow Hill", they have a web site. Denver based music/arts society. They have lots of music based performance and education activities.

    thanks Jim, I have been to Swallow hill ,took several different Guitar series there when I was a (GASP) guitar player. Kind of a terrible drive for me on week nights, traffic is lousy and I get up way early to go to work

    Understood, I don't much care to drive in Denver myself.

    Hello Brandon,

    The Olde Town Pickin Parlor has their Monthly Bluegrass jam this Sunday. I have not been yet, but it is the 27th. They also offer lessons, but I don't know the prices. Steve Mullins teaches there and I think his musical styles are in line with what you are looking for?

    I think the White Fence Farm offers another Bluegrass Jam on Thursday.

    Although the jams are not the musical styles specific to what you were looking for, it's a start.

    I went to the Jim Richter camp for the rest of us, last year and it was a blast. I plan on going again this year. Focus was on, Rock, Blues, and a bit of everything else, minus Arabic and Charo.

    I would bet Steve Mullins would able to steer you in the right direction for Arabic, Choro and Celtic, but I could be totally wrong.


    I hope this helps


    All the best
    Scott
