Come jam with us! Friday Night Jam at Bruthen Inn Hotel 15th February, 2019.  Fill out the form below and get amongst it!

The Bruthen Blues and Arts Festival Friday Night Jam is an opportunity for keen amateur solo musicians and bands to get up and play a short set to the welcoming blues festival crowd.  We have a few prizes too. Jammers can either win a spot at the Saturday Night Music Cafe, 16th February, win a Weekend Pass (access to all venues!) or a 6hr recording session at Bruthen Music! WOW!

Judges will look for musicians that capture the spirit of jamming and classic blues music (actually, all music welcome!).  They also look for performance, originality, delivery, skill and definitely entertainment style.  And this is live jamming only, so no pre-recorded backing tracks thanks.

The famous local event was how this festivel started back in 1995, and today marks the opening of 3 days of great blues music.  The jam night has created some of the best festival memories and what a way to start the weekend.

 Here are the 4 basic rules:

  • strictly no more than 2 songs, and no more than 10 minutes. And this includes set-up/pack-down time. The Friday Night Jam is so popular, we need to fit you all in!
  • spots are limited. Entries will be accepted until all places are filled
  • you will be notified that your application has been received, confirming your spot
  • if, by some miracle, there are remaining spots on the night, artists can register at the venue front of house
