    I'd be interested in any old-time or ITM in the Fort Worth area. Sorry if this seems piggyback.

    Check out the jam at the Belmont Hotel bar any Sunday from 3-6. You'll find more Americana and old time music than bluegrass, but a fine jam, all the same.

    Here is a place in Plano, TX that I go to listen:

    Not what I consider "Bluegrass" but on occasion something interesting will pop-up. Also, not sure if there are any jam sessions or open play days, but give them a call.

    Well I'm over here on the square and no one is here, but I was told by person waiting that pickers show up about 8:00. And it's 102 degrees here right now so maybe it's to hot to get a big crowd. I'm hanging anyway. Will let y'all know how it goes.

    Garland, TX on the Square every Saturday night. Several groups playing different music, but the Bluegrass guys are great.

    For those folks that's not use to Texas heat I strongly suggest that you show up about sundown or a few minutes past, say dark-thirty. Also, bring something to drink. There is a small coffee/tea shop across the street that is excellent and fairly inexpensive and good stuff can be bought there. Lots of nice folks and lots of great music.

    I was in Texas in June, and The old time jam at the Dallas Heritage Village was active. Not sure about now, but you can google it. Most of the other jams were taking a break due to COVID.

    Try Meetup. I registered yesterday to look for jams in DFW area. Found bluegrass jams in Grapevine and Carrollton. There are Friday night jams in Lewisville.

    Garland square still going, weather permitting. Sons of Herman Hall on Thursday night in Deep Ellum is closed for now but hopeful that it will open back up soon when the bars open.

    On Meetup you'll see an Accoustical Gospel Jam group. I signed up for a jam in Irving on 3/20.

    There is a BG jam at a church in downtown Grapevine (or used to be). I attended once. It was fun. You should be able to find it on Google. I think the location was called "Just Off Main".
