    Slow Pitch Jam is an instructional jam led by expert facilitator Sue Malcolm and her excellent band. Learn classic bluegrass repertoire in a slow-tempo, no-pressure format. Instruments are grouped together - no individual solos.

    Slow Pitch Jams happen every month on the First Monday of the month (adjusting for Holidays if needed) - From September to June - starting at 7:30 pm and going until 9:00 pm.  Check the Calendar View for more information about a particular month.  After 9, we'll have a jam circle with faster tunes, crooked forms and loads of fun.

    The Slow Pitch Jams take place on the Anza Main floor.  During these jams, there is almost always a little faster, open jamming on other floors of the Anza.

    • The Anza Club - 3 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver

    Doors at 7:00

    Show Starts at 7:30 with Stardust String Band

    Stardust Stringband occupies that sweet spot found somewhere between the vibrant energy of old-time music, the straight-shooting delivery of golden-era country, and the lonesome harmony stacks of bluegrass. Born in Vancouver's late-night bluegrass scene, the band is made up of S. Clements (fiddle), J.R. Proctor (banjo/guitar), D. Kovacek (mandolin/guitar) and B. Clarke (keeping it steady on the bull fiddle).

    Slocan Ramblers at 8:00

    The Slocan Ramblers are Canada’s young bluegrass band to watch. Rooted in the tradition, fearlessly creative, and possessing a bold, dynamic sound- these 2015 Edmonton Folk Fest Emerging Artist Award recipients have quickly become a leading light of Canada’s roots music scene, built on their reputation for energetic live shows, impeccable musicianship and their uncanny ability to convert anyone within earshot into a lifelong fan.

    General Admission - $25
