The Lake Cumberland Jammers meet every Tuesday night at the Carnegie Community Arts Center in Somerset, Ky. Starting around 5:30 pm, musicians (pickers) and spectators (grinners) begin arriving at the jam, and by 6 pm the music begins in full swing. Folks are treated to an evening of down-home music, and refreshments are provided free.
The pickers sit in a large semi-circle and take turns singing and leading the others in their favorite songs. The music ranges from old-time favorites, bluegrass standards, country classics and gospel songs, to original tunes by some of the “jammers.”
Members of the audience will occasionally step into the circle to sing one of their favorites.
