Memories Of Our First Jam

Our first Pickin' In The Park jam session was held on Sunday, May 11, 2003 at Thomas Square in Honolulu. Over three dozen musicians brought banjos, fiddles, mandolins, guitars, resophonic guitars and upright basses to the all-acoustic jam session. The "pickers" took turns improvising breaks on instrumentals such as "Salt Creek", "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" and "Jerusalem Ridge", and harmonizing on tunes like "Angel Band", "Paradise", and "Rollin' In My Sweet Baby's Arms."

Two bluegrass bands on O`ahu, the Down Boys and the Wild Orchids String Band, contributed their talents to Sunday's jam session. Musicians from local traditional jam, contradance, and hootenanny groups also played at the event.
