Kids Jams at the Freight

After a great first jam in February, the California Bluegrass Association and the Freight and Salvage will continue to bring bluegrass jams for kids and teens 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.


These sessions are an opportunity for young players and singers to meet up and work on their craft and the fine art of jamming. No individual instructors on specific instruments will be provided, but experienced musicians Dana Frankel, John Gooding, Jake Gooding, Larry Cohea, and Butch Waller 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 and snacks will be provided by CBA volunteers.

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.
