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!”
