Kids Jams at the Freight

The California Bluegrass Association and the Freight and Salvage are teaming up to bring bluegrass jams for kids to the Freight! These jams are perfect for young musicians ages 6 to 16 who want to hone their ensemble playing skills, practice their rhythm, and work on their solo breaks. Fiddles, mandolins, guitars, banjos, dobros, and basses are welcome, and bluegrass legend Kathy Kallick will lead a song circle for anyone who wants to join in but doesn’t play an instrument

These sessions are an opportunity for young players and singers to meet up and work on their craft. No individual instructors on specific instruments will be provided, but experienced musicians Dana Frankel, John Gooding, and Jake Gooding will help out and lead the jams. Jammers should already have some experience on their instrument.

For a list of possible songs, please contact Adult supervision will be provided by CBA volunteers. Jams will be held at the Freight and Salvage from 12-3 pm. The first jam on February 26 is free! Following jams will be $10 per jammer.

Freighter Tots: Folk singing with kids ages 18 months to 6 years

In this song circle, we’ll sing, dance to, and act out folk songs about things kids care about: things like animals, nature, vehicles, their bodies, family, friends and being silly. Little children can start to understand tempo and rhythm using toy instruments; parents and other caretakers can learn songs to sing and games to play with their children. Make music part of their lives! Music builds community.
