The Chelten Jam  

When:  Traditionally held on the
fourth Friday of each month at 7-10 pm

 Where:  Find us at
Calvary Presbyterian Church, Bent & Fernbrook Rds

Important :  Get on our email list to get the exact date of the next  Jam
we skip one or reschedule one every now and then)

 Bring your guitar, banjo, violin, ukelele, keyboard, mandolin, accordion, harmonica,
whistles, hammered dulcimer, harp, etc -----  and a few of your favorite tunes, all polished up and ready to perform. 

Format:  Musician's Choice Open Circle format.
  (All are welcome to sing along – but musicians with prepared tunes take the lead. We are not a "singing circle".  )  
We always love the tunes where everyone can play along - and it is an uspoken policy that people can join musically and vocally unless you ask them specifically not to.

Please bring a drink or a small snack to share. 
Nobody eats a lot while they're singing - so small contributions are just fine - and you can take whatever's leftover home with you!
A small $ contribution is also welcomed to thank the church for hosting and for supplies  . 

We'll take a brief break in the middle to discuss how national issues and local issues intersect
 and to encourage one another to actively take part in the things that impact our lives so dramatically.

We encourage those who might like, to continue discussions after the jam.

Again :  Please be sure we haven't switched up the day or time, or had to cancel by contacting
or by receiving an email that confirms we are "on".   We email the date and time each month.
