Our next meeting will be held on Monday, April 11th from 7 – 10pm. SJARMS member Dave Field will be giving a presentation on the Appalachian Dulcimer. Dave has been custom building dulcimers since 1964 and his craftmanship is second to none! Dave will discuss various topics relating to the dulcimer, including its construction, tuning(s) and historical relevance in roots music.

Following Dave’s presentation, we will have an open mic and acoustic jam. All playing levels are welcome to participate in the jam, so be sure to bring your acoustic instruments.

How’s this for some March Madness: Virtuoso bluegrass guitarist Mark Cosgrove will be the featured performer at our March 14th meeting!

Mark is a nationally known musician who previously won the U.S. National Flatpicking Guitar Championship in Winfield, KS and has shared the stage with many bluegrass legends, including Jerry Douglas (of Allison Krauss and Union Station fame), among others. Mark will be playing in a trio with rhythm guitarist Peter Lorch (of Stone Mountain Road — our November featured performer) and bassist Larry Cohen. Mark is a phenominal musician who typically plays at large venues such as bluegrass festivals and concert theaters. This will be a very rare opportunity for SJARMS members and visitors to see Mark perform in the MAC’s intimate and acoustically pure setting! Following the performance, Mark will hang around and join in on our monthly jam! This will surely be a night to remember.

The MAC is located at 18 North Main Street, in beautiful, historic Medford, NJ. Doors open at 7pm. The performance is free to SJARMS members and first time visitors. $10 for visitors who have already been to one of our meetings but have not yet joined as a member.

Welcome to the official website of the South Jersey Acoustic Roots Music Society!   This site will be updated frequently with the latest information about upcoming SJARMS meetings, performances, workshops and other events.  Check out our calander for the many events that are already scheduled this year.  We will also be adding a media archive that features photos and video from past and future meetings and performances.

Our next meeting will be on February 14th (yes, Valentine’s day) from 7:00 to 9:30 pm at the Medford Arts Center.  The meeting will feature our Open Mic (in which both musicians and non-musicians are encouraged to participate — see the Open Mic tab above for more info) and our Acoustic Jam.   As always, coffee and light refreshments will be served.

Since our first meeting last September, we have been overwhelmed by the level of interest and support we have seen.  We look forward to watching SJARMS continue to grow into an important gathering place for acoustic musicians and music lovers alike.  If this sounds good to you, please consider becomming a member and then come on out to hear some great pickin’!
