Bluegrass Jam Music Lovers

The Bluegrass jam at 18 W. Hearne keeps growing in size with music lovers from all over the area flocking to enjoy the sweet sounds.  An increasing crowd means improving the volume and Travis Babb was on hand to do just that. He has been involved in music ever since his younger years and was willing to devote his time to bring a full sound to the listening room. Pat Conrad and everyone else involved appreciate any help they can get to keep the bluegrass alive in Paris, Texas. Anyone is welcome to join the multitude of talent on the stage! While sitting in on the jam this Tuesday  we heard songs like “Down Yonder”, “Milk Cow Blues”, “Glory Land Way”, and a beautiful traditional song called “Lorena” written by Rev. Henry D. L. Webster in 1856. Everyone had a laugh when the musical congregation played “Mama Don’t Allow”. The Bluegrass jam is exactly what music is all about which is “the art or science of combining vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.” When you attend one of these gatherings you experience just that as well as a sense of family, love, and heart felt joy.

Come on out and “bring a chair if you like!”

  2. Love the aricle about tuesdays jam. We all love it very much. I am from sulphur springs and play fiddle also only girl, it has really become a part of my life and can’t wait until tuesdays. Everyone that comes are so nice and we have all became one big family on tuesdays. We can not thank Bo Creighton, Whiz, Pat Conrad, and Hugh Jones for providing this entertainment for all to enjoy and keeping Bluegrass alive. Thank you for letting others know about it.
