Hi Ray,
There is a regular bluegrass jam session at Kingstowne Acoustic Music in Alexandria, VA (http://kingstowneacousticmusic.com) every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month. Slow jam runs from 1-2pm, regular jam from 2-6pm. The store is run by David Evans and has become a good place for jamming in Northern Virginia. Hope to see you there sometime!

Greetings folks. I'm still kind of a beginner (getting close to intermediate, maybe). I love going to Round Hill, it's only about 15 minutes away from me. Frying Pan Park sounds cool, but I haven't been yet.

Marcy,
This group looks very interesting. Hope to see it grow. BTW, I'm having a potluck/jam at my house Saturday November 22 starting at 1:30 pm and goes until. Seating is limited, RSVP please. To all who are interested, let me know via email address at: bryca137@aol.com ....

Take care Marcy and have a great day. I'll see you around IMT sometime.
Andy B.

I like to drive! I also lived in DC area (Potomac) (pre flatpicking days) for 17 years. One of my daughters is still down that way, so I visit as often as possible. It would sure be nice to hook up with some jams and pickin buddies when I'm down there visiting! I am also a Kaufman Kamper always looking to hook up with carpoolers to Maryville.

Ha! Found this quite by accident. I'd love to jam with some fellown flatpickers although a lot of my time is spent with my group the Mill Run Dulcimer Band and the ugly four letter word called work. I live in Greenbelt.

Hi folks, I'm over SE of DC in Owings, MD.

I was a regular participant at the Good Deale Bluegrass Shop jams (Deale, MD), but unfortunately the shop is no more. The Weds., Thurs., Fri., and Sat. jams there will be greatly missed.

Been getting together regularly at my place lately with a couple of fellow Orrin Star students and seeing noticeable improvement in my playing!

I am moving back to MD the end of June and am wondering if there are any picks around the Baltimore area. I would love to get re-initiated to the scene and find some folks to pick and play with. Thanks for your ideas.

Based in Baltimore city, commuting to DC, and taking kids to activities a couple of evenings each week, I try most days just to grab a few minutes to pick. I would like to supplement my sorta-regular Sunday morning jam with a couple of friends if I found or could help create a nearby opportunity.
