Edinburgh Jam Group is a UK based independent music charity, owned and run by musicians for musicians

Edinburgh Jam Group is a Scottish Charity  that was established over 10 years ago as an informal collective of musicians from across the Lothians and formalised in 2021. We are a music initiative that aims to provide everyone with an opportunity and means to develop their musical creativity and provide the support, training, mentorship, equipment and facilities needed for them to do so.

Our mission is to bring people together through music, and foster and encourage opportunities for people of all backgrounds, styles and experience to meet and share music, make valuable new contacts, access resources, and realise their potential.

The support we deliver comes in many forms, from weekly open jam sessions to open mic/open band events, to high-profile showcase concerts at venues around town. In addition, our state-of-the-art studio is available for hire 7 days a week for bands and artists to rehearse, record, stream and obtain photography and video, and we offer a selection of inhouse training and mentoring services to support the development and performance aspirations of musicians of all abilities.

We are passionate about providing a positive, supportive, safe and fun atmosphere in everything we do, and work closely with the local community to develop our capabilities and outreach potential.
