Classic Jazz at Lincoln Library presents a series of live trad jazz jams in which local musicians gather in informal ensembles to play classic traditional jazz.

Every 3rd Saturday of the month from 1-5 pm a regular core of trad jazz lovers gathers in the elegant Tarbell Room in the Lincoln Library for an afternoon of jamming to the tunes of the ‘20s,’30s & ‘40s.
