About Us - Jam Sessions
The Bluegrass Association of North Dakota  
was formed to preserve and promote bluegrass music in North
Dakota.  At present the organization has about  100 members
from all over the state.

What are Bluegrass Instruments?
Bluegrass instruments are fiddle, 6-string guitar, 5-string banjo,
mandolin, upright acoustic bass (double bass), Dobro guitar  
(played with steel), harmonica,and autoharp.  Bluegrass
jamming is playing informally, usually sitting in a circle.  In
bluegrass jams, players and singers trade off, playing lead
breaks and backup, singing lead parts and harmonies and
enjoying a music that is greater than the sum of its parts.  One
purpose of jamming is to learn how to play along on songs
whether you know them or not.
