Welcome to Jam Town, home of Gilbert Nelson and his world of music.
Entertainment . . . Instruction . . . Musical Fun and Success
Gilbert Nelson is all about music. Bluegrass is his first love but Gilbert is right at home with Country, Blues, Old Time, Americana and more. From individual instruction to Music Jam Camps and as a professional entertainer with his band The Jam Town Grass, Gilbert is highly regarded. Guitars, banjos, mandolins, dobros, bass fiddles, and bass guitars are all part of Gilbert’s world. Singing and harmony are the golden thread that bind it all together. Want to learn to play? Gilbert’s bluegrass music lessons will help you have fun fast.
Summer is the season of Bluegrass Festivals and Jam Classes and Camps. And the biggest and best Jam Camp in the area happens during the run-up to the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion. The Bristol Jam Camp will take off on September 13-16 in Abingdon, VA. Gilbert also hosts guided jams monthly in Spartanburg, NC. Check the coming events listing for more dates and locations.
Gilbert is a certified Wernick Method teacher. He teaches jam classes from North Carolina to Florida, and from South Carolina to Tennessee and Virginia. His jam classes at popular festivals provide jammers the chance to put what they see on stage into their own practice.
