Local Calendar: Wednesday night bluegrass jam in La Fargeville

Time to polish off that dusty banjo...

The American Legion  in La Fargeville, N.Y., hosts a 7 p.m. open mic bluegrass jam every Wednesday. Admission's free, refreshments are cheap, and the company is second-to-none. There's a bluegrass festival coming up June 4 to 6, so there's no time like the present to brush up on a few songs. Here are  photos from last night's event:
