Sunday Bluegrass Jams

Sunday:  Now in our fourth year of jamming to toe-tapping bluegrass standards, ballads, and gospel tunes, Calusa Nature Center’s Bluegrass Jam plays something for everyone. The group is dedicated to playing bluegrass and sharing it with others. And that means Sunday Bluegrass Jams on the Back Porch are back! Sundays from 1 – 3:00 pm, bring your bluegrass instruments and your bluegrass tunes (or just your bluegrass heart, to listen) and come to the porch for the Sunday Bluegrass Jam organized (loosely) by local bluegrass musicians. This event is FREE with your $10 general admission to Calusa Nature Center & Planetarium
