What is a jam?

A jam is for musicians. All levels are welcome, from beginner to advanced. Experienced musicians lead common contra dance tunes at slow tempos, everyone else follows along. This is a great opportunity for muscians to learn the contra repertoire, to develop their ear, and to meet other musicians!
