The Jurassic Jam Sessions run on the first Wednesday of every Month (excluding August) at the Dolphin Hotel Beer from 8 - 10.15pm . This club is for instrumentalists of all types and is intended to provide tunes in which others can join. Singing, provided it is accompanied by an instrument, is fine, as long as other instruments can join in. This will give those who wish, a chance to lead, with everyone having the opportunity to join in. All music will be acoustic so that there will be no gaps between slots.Jurassic Jam (JJ) is hosted by Adrian Ball and Andrew Mycroft. All abilities of musician will receive a warm welcome.
