This 7:30p Wednesday evening event has been held weekly at the City of Austin Hancock Recreation Center for decades now (no jam if the park is closed for a holiday). The contra dances are taught and prompted by a caller, music is provided by the jam session, so you will have an audience.

All ages and levels of proficiency are welcome. You will find musicians here that range from beginners to seasoned professionals. There is some exceptional talent at this event, which is immersed in a very welcoming atmosphere. All instruments are welcome. Along with the usual fiddle, guitar, banjo, and mandolin you will find penny whistles, flutes, concertinas, accordions, clarinets, bass, drums, etc.
