  • Boat called Songbird

    So long, Songbird

    Robbin Thompson lost his 15-year fight with cancer late Friday night. He was at home with family and friends. Virginia – and the world really – lost too. He endured many lengthy treatments, with devious side effects, but rarely if ever complained. By all accounts, he faced his illness with courage and his well-known sense of humor. In a newsletter this year he talked about the battle and his decision to take another shot at beating cancer.

  • W. Scott Street

    W. Scott Street 1944-2015

    All of us at JAMinc mourn the loss of our fellow board member and dear friend Scott Street, who died February 1st after a brief but brave fight with a rare cancer. As an attorney, lover and supporter of music and dedicated banjo player, Scott has been an important part of JAMinc’s mission since its inception and we will sorely miss his wise counsel, warm smile and abiding love of the five-string.

Upcoming Events

Creating music isn’t a means to an end, it is an end with a meaning for Aaron Burdett. Writing and creating songs is rooted somewhere deep in his psyche; it’s something that can’t be denied and must be shared.

School Outreach

At the core of JAMinc’s mission is music education. JAMinc is dedicated to bringing music from all corners of the world to Richmond area school to expose K-12 students to traditional music from a variety of cultures.

Past Concerts

The local nonprofit JAMinc doesn’t just bring musical offerings, lessons and workshops to central Virginia schools, it also co-sponsors an ongoing live concert series in the intimate (and state-of-the-art) confines of In Your Ear studio.
