The Carp Celtic Jam is a weekly session that started in September 2004. It was inspired by the Ottawa Celtic Slow Jam, which has been running successfully in the Glebe (Ottawa) for over 20 years. The Carp Jam is for Celtic musicians of all levels and ages who want to play with others, whether you play by ear/memory or from sheet music.
You choose to pay either a $20 membership fee for a given three-month period or $3 per Monday that you attend—it depends on how often you think you’ll come out. Note: All money collected is used to pay for the room rental.
Any and all, percussion included. Traditional instruments include: fiddle, mandolin, bodhran, tin whistle, flute, banjo, accordion, guitar, autoharp, piano/keyboard, concertina, cello, bass.
That is some of the basics. Visit our website for more Q&A about jam sessions.
Or . . . Come to watch and to listen. There is never a charge for that!
Jams take place in the Carp (Carleton) Masonic Temple – 3704 Carp Rd., Carp ON K0A 1L0
Mondays, 7 to 9 p.m., often including holiday Mondays.
