Canal Street Pub’s United Jam Session of America(n Federation of Musicians)
Tuesday, April 5 2022, 6pm – 9pm
A tradition-in-the-making, this is the second partnership between Canal Street Pub, the American Federation of Musicians, and the Music Performance Trust Fund.
Live streaming became the norm for musicians in 2020. Through generous grants from the Music Performance Trust Fund (MPTF), musicians throughout the United States and Canada were able to stay afloat by doing paid live streams through this program.
Canal Street Pub was among the first to step up to host countless live streams, providing the musicians with much needed large space in order that they may socially distance during performances.
This jam session is a means for all musicians to share their talents with each other and fans of the music. We hope you will join the musicians in celebrating this Reading institution.
