Every 1st Monday of the month is the very popular Blues Jam. Our resident band will jam the night away with players of any standard, so bring your guitars, mouth organs, sticks or vocal chords and play the blues. Just seek out Franny when you arrive and they'll give you the lowdown on how it works. All welcome to join in or kick back and watch the players in action!
