On assorted winter Sundays, The Parlor Room welcomes American roots musicians for the Parlor Sessions series. Each night is a concert followed by a break for hot soup and an all-comers' jam session. The Parlor Sessions are the antidote to the dark winter months -- a little like home, if home is a houseful of wicked great musicians. Come to listen, come to play.
