This is good news! I’ll bring either my fiddle or my mandolin. I know a little bluegrass and old timey music, fiddle tunes etc. That would be really cool! Thanks for the heads-up!
See you soon!

Subject: Jams at ARSC Conference
Maddie: I hope you get this in time and can bring your instruments. In my 30+ years of ARSC COnferences I can't remember many jams and Mike Biel mentioned Vinny sitting in with band hired for the Banquet but last year in Chapel Hill, I asked both Stephen Wade and Dom Flemmons - both PROFESSIONAL banjo players to bring their instruments cause I'd like to hang in hotel lobby and listen. What started as just two guys playing off each other the first night became a nightly event and on Saturday afternoon Cary Moscovitz (who was also the Banquet entertainer with his band with Dom sitting in) joined the group. I captured much of it on video and - unlike Mike's - is posted on You tube (I can provide link). Before the banquet a few others with instruments (I think Martin Fisher and one other person) played.
This was FOLK or Americana music - not JAZZ - and it worked in CH. Neither Dom (whose so busy with his shows) and Stephen are coming this year but Martin is and - if he sees this - I hope he'll bring his instrument. I'd love it if other bring their portable instruments (I don't play; someone has to listen !) that would be great. A lot of folks play the piano but I don't think we'll find one sitting around.
Safe travels to Pbgh. I'll see you there.

I can’t bring my bass, but I can bring
my fiddle or mando.
