Not a Festival – Rather a Community of  Bluegrass Pickers

Vince May, the volunteer jams organizer says, “Please keep in mind that these are not music festivals with paid performers, rather these are informal community “jams” with both dedicated and learning Bluegrass pickers coming together for weekends of music, fun and a beverage or three.”

Campfire at Bluegrass Jams - Graves Mountain Farm

Pickers are free-form in the Campground. As always.

The camp ground sits in the lee of the mountains of the Blue Ridge, 11 miles west of Madison, VA, surrounded by 1100 acres of farm with animals, horses, meadow, forest and home style southern cooking at the Lodge.

Friday- Saturday Nights

The jam weekends get tuned up for picking on the Friday night and continue through Saturday night with a leisurely pack up of RV and car on Sunday.

Bring an Instrument and Join In

Please bring your instrument and sit in, bring a camp chair and listen, cruise from RV to RV, listening.

Not Just Picking

With 1800 acres, there is lots to do on the farm, streams, and mountains – not just picking all the time. Please pass this along to others you know and we look forward to seeing you for the weekend.

Jamming Fri night, Sat day and night.
