Every Monday night (except holidays) Evans Senior Center is transformed into a Bluegrass jam session. Bluegrass musicians from all over the area come to play, sing and socialize and everyone is given an opportunity to share his or her talent for an appreciative audience. The session runs from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Coffee and snacks are served. Monday Night Jam Sessions are free but donations are accepted to help cover the refreshment costs. Adults of all ages are welcome.
