JAM Program

The Junior Appalachian Musicians program is a nonprofit with branches in Virginia, North & South Carolina, and Tennessee.

Jam envisions a world in which all children have the opportunity to experience community through the joy of participating in traditional mountain music together.

Their mission is to provide communities with the tools and support they need to teach children to play and dance to traditional old time and bluegrass music.

They believe that children who are actively engaged in traditional mountain music are more connected and better prepared to strengthen their communities for future generations.
