JamVember 2019 Info ​

JamVember 2019 is coming up the weekend before Thanksgiving – November 22nd, 23rd, and 24th – and this year we will be welcoming our first-ever “Guest Jammers”: Greg Cahill, Rick Faris, Nick Dumas, and Dan Eubanks – better known by their collective band name, Special Consensus!

Special Consensus will be at JamVember 2019 all weekend long to host jams, teach workshops, and even play a show on Saturday night at 7:30 pm. All of this will be included with your JamVember ticket, but you can also take a hands-on, in-depth class with a member of Special Consensus on Friday afternoon before JamVember begins.

All four Friday afternoon classes with Greg (banjo), Rick (guitar), Nick (mandolin), and Dan (bass) will be geared towards intermediate-to-advanced pickers, and will meet on the following schedule: 

Friday, November 22nd
starting from 1 pm until 3 pm
and then from 4 pm until 6 pm
(with an hour-long break from 3 until 4 pm)

The tuition for these four-hour classes is $65 and is separate from the JamVember ticket cost. Interested students will pay their teacher directly, and you can take a class even if you don’t attend JamVember.

Last year’s Teacher Bios and Workshop Descriptions can be found here:


Last year’s schedule featured over 50 instructors hosting 100 workshops and jams, but this was just a fraction of the amazing music at JamVember. There were also a number of rooms on the Lowel Level with no scheduled jams (so anyone could jam there whenever they wanted to), and people were able to jam on the Picking Floor, which was the “T” of rooms at the back of the First Floor past both sets of elevators. ​
