It was May 2008 that a few local musicians started gathering on a corner near the Washington Waterfront to share some musical talent. Over the past 10 years, this weekly gathering has grown into a unique Beaufort County attraction for both musicians and music lovers all over Eastern Carolina.
In partnership with Arts of the Pamlico, BCTMA is based at the historic Turnage Theater at 150 West Main Street, Washington, NC. This venue provides a stage for guest musicians and monthly Variety Shows. BCTMA also hosts Thursday Evening and Saturday Morning Jams where musicians of all skill levels are invited to come out for these informal events. Bring an instrument, or just come to listen.

Hi Folks, I hope these notes find you well. Some of us are still working in essential jobs, and some of us are at home. I hope we can get together in the future and celebrate our love for traditional music.
We won’t be jamming for a while, but there are many opportunities to play along with musicians on the computer. There are a lot of folks picking up their instruments again now that they have some time. Send me links if you have some favorite music sites or songs you have been listening to. Please take care of yourselves. You are all in my prayers.
Stay tuned, stay well, and stay home!
Our weekly jams on Thursday nights and Saturday mornings are open to musicians of all levels. Check our events calendar for specific dates and times.
