Area music lovers can beat the tempermental winter weather patterns and head indoors Friday evening for the Princeton Jam session of bluegrass, gospel and country music, held each month at the First Lutheran Church in Princeton. Alison Coyer (left) with her hammered dulcimer, is a regular performer at the Princeton Jam, as are other musicians from throughout the area like Owen Johnson (right). The Princeton Jam is held from 6 to 10 p.m. on the third Friday of every month at the church. Local musicians and listeners are all welcome to attend. Listeners and performers may come and go as they like, or stay for the entire time. Snacks and soft drinks will be available. For more information, call 815-875-2057.
