I'm a novice, and I mean novice, lefty tenor banjo player located in Ashland, VA (near Richmond) with an interest in Irish/Celtic, New Orleans jazz, folk music, jug band, ragtime, tin-pan-alley, gypsy jazz, novelty songs, old-time, country blues & standards. I will soon be also getting a banjo uke.

I'm looking for someone or someones in my area with similar enough musical interests who would like jam, practice & share some tunes. Fellow beginners welcome. Not interested in forming a band or playing in public, just low-key, no-pressure living room/garage/kitchen/backyard jamming.

Outside of traditional roots music I also like “contemporary” bands Grateful Dead, Phish, Dr. Dog, My Morning Jacket, Ween, MGMT, O'death, Camper Van Beethoven...so I wouldn't mind playing some of these tunes as well (on tenor banjo!) but in an old-timey style, preferably.
