Looking at Jazz, Klezmer and Irish Folk Sessions: Why not doing so with Early Music? In order to revive the culture of spontanious playing in renaissance and baroque music, Martin Erhardt and Annegret Fischer created a new platform: The "EarlyMusic-JamSession". Since 2005, we invite regulary to listen and to participate in our Sessions, who mostly take place in Weimar or Leipzig. Everybody playing in 415Hz may join us. We are playing on Grounds, dance tunes, baroque Evergreens and Standards from the Renaissance. If you're interested, don't hesitate to contact me!
