GRENNA BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL & ROOKIE RIOT PROUDLY PRESENTS
The Most Unusual
Bluegrass Event This Year!
So, we wanted to do something out of the ordinary. After a long pandemic winter, we reckon there are quite a few people around the country that are longing to play some bluegrass with other people.
We Want To Bring The Jam To Your Place
The Jam Van is packed with inspiration and tips and tricks for anyone who want to evolve in their personal skills, bring their whole band to finetune the sound or just come and have a fun time, jam, and meet new people.
This event is suitable for beginner & intermediate level musicians or for advanced players who just wanna enjoy the fun. You can also bring your full band to get inspiration and tips of how to progress.
Although the workshop will be adjusted to fit the participants on each occasion here are som basic ideas we can talk about; tips for each instrument how to contribute to a jam or band situation, creating dynamic arrangements, how to set-up your band to play in the street and on stage, understanding the role and responsibility of your instrument, jam session best practices, and more...!
This is what you get:
BBQ and fun
Traveling Circus Atmosphere
Printed material with jam and workshop song lyrics & chords
We start in the SouthWest

May 12 - Malmö
May 14 - Göteborg
