News Release

---- — Vincennes University’s Beckes Student Union will come alive with the sound of fiddles, banjoes, mandolins, guitars and more during the 14th annual Old Post Bluegrass Jam from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Feb. 9. Admission is free.

The event will take place at 1101 N. Second St. and feature acoustic musicians in live jam sessions throughout the building. Free parking will be available on the Third Street side of the building.

“The Bluegrass Jam is a lot of fun for both participants and the audience,” said Bill Stedman, longtime organizer of the popular event. As one of the first jams of the year, Stedman says the event always draws musicians from a large geographic area, as well as an appreciative audience. Stedman invites area musicians to bring their acoustic instruments and join in the fun.

Groups will also perform on stage in the food court. Food and beverages will be available at Grinder’s Coffee Shop beginning at 7:30 a.m., and the food court will be open for lunch.
