BlueBUG Jams -
Are you are an established ukulele player? If you can comfortably play along at a BUG jam, join us at a BlueBUG jam. At a BlueBUG jam, players explore the connection between Blues and Bluegrass music.
Who: The jam emphasis will be on blues songs played on ukulele. This jam is geared for advanced beginners to advanced uke players. BlueBUG jams are open to the public. Other instruments (guitar, harmonica, washboard, etc.) are also welcome.
What: At BlueBUG we have a list of 10 Blues songs that players will learn to expand their playing skills. This includes five songs from Jumpin' Jim's book Blues Ukulele by Fred Sokolow, and five additional blues songs. The songs will change over time, but we will stay focused on a limited selection.

BlueBUG players will practice on their own and come together once a month to share their learning. This is not a music lesson, but is a supportive learning environment.
When: The 3rd Tuesday of each month from 7 to 9 p.m.
Where: Kenwood (Park) Community Center – 2101 Franklin Ave. W, Minneapolis, MN 55405 -

You just never see someone playing a uke without a smile on their face!
