Practice Sessions for Contra Musicians

Weekly Musician's Jam

The open band meets at weekly Musicians' Jams on Sunday afternoons from 1:30 to 3:30. All instruments and all ability levels are welcome to practice with us. We play at the home of Jan and Frank Phillips, 44 E California Ave., Columbus, OH. 43202. Contact Jan to verify any particular jam date. There is an e-mail list for band scheduling announcements. We will add you to the list.

Some of the tunes we play come from Kentucky Contra tunes (this document contains music as well as a list of tunes).

The band plays as Three Rivers String Band monthly at the Clintonville dances at Clinton Heights Lutheran Church and periodically at other dances and music events in the area. Play at these events is by invitation.

Directions: From N. High St. and North Broadway, go 6 blocks south on High. Turn east (L) onto E. California. Jan's house is on the North side of the street. It's roughly the sixth house on your left as you go up the hill (might be one or two off in my estimate of the count). Look for the curving brick stairway leading up to the front porch. View Map.

For more information, contact Jan Fleming at 614-886-2166 (evenings) or Harold Cheyney (614)486-1127 or (614)961-9560.
