Jam Sessions with the Ellington Carthan Trio
In the spirit of togetherness, this music series invites community participation through creative collaboration. Led by genre-blending performer and composer Ellington Carthan and his collective of local musicians, monthly jam sessions offer an opportunity for drop-in artists to bring a tune to perform or workshop with Ellington’s crew. This format invites interaction and participation from audience members and observers, as well as drop-in performers, creating a casual and inspiring vibe and building a uniquely connected experience through music.
Spring 2021 Jam Sessions will be presented virtually and released on Facebook. Audiences are invited to email us with song requests or to request a pre-scheduled drop-in session with the band.
