Next bluegrass jam Sunday on Dove Mountain


The next bluegrass jam on Dove Mountain is this Sunday, Dec. 20, on the patio next to Vero Amore on Tangerine Road.

It's set from 3 to 5 p.m., when the sun's out.

Pickin' and grinnin' sessions, free and open to the public, are hosted by the Desert Bluegrass Association. They're in the Dove Mountain Retail Center, at Tangerine and Dove Mountain Boulevard.

"Come join us for some Good ole Bluegrass Music," a release said. "It's good medicine that will put a smile on your face."

For the next two months, jams are planned on the first Thursday and the third Sunday, each from 3 to 5 p.m., a release said.

Lawn chairs are encouraged.
