Music Jams at Lindy Focus 


We have a long tradition of informal swing music playing at camp, which are attended by amateurs and pros alike, 'til the wee hours of the morning. Bring your instrument to join in!


Shannon Lea Watkins will be the official host and facilitator of these jams, to prevent them from going the way of the wild west. She won’t be present for every moment of playing, but will generally oversee the happenings, and be there to encourage respectful jam behavior, inclusiveness, and musical good taste! Huge thanks to Shannon for taking on this incredible task of cat-herding.

Are available HERE along with some important reading and great community conversation!

Every evening after the main dance there will be a jam near the lobby by the fireplace. This is where the bulk of the playing happens! But there are also several specialized sessions we want you to know about:

  • 12/27 12:30am - Jammers Meet & Greet - After the main dance, let’s get together and get this party started!

  • 12/28 5:30-6:30pm - Vocalist Primer for Music Jams - Vocalists and aspiring vocalists of any level are welcome to this session, where we’ll talk about how a vocalist can get the most out of a music jam situation.

  • 12/29 5:00-7:00pm - Women and Nonbinary Music Jam - This has previously been an informal activity led by women in the community just to get a little jam time without men present to build confidence and camaraderie. We love that it happens, so now it’s on the official schedule!
