Great musicians and fantastic bands might not be the first thing that comes to mind when people think of Connecticut but I can tell you first-hand that talent runs deeper than the river that flows through our fine state. For the sixth time, River Jam will showcase performers from Connecticut as well as Rhode Island and Massachusetts at their annual festival held at the Mystic Shipyard. This event has been a labor of love since its inception and continues to uplift the community with the joy it brings as well as the charitable contributions it makes. River Jam is also a wonderful family-friendly opportunity that highlights yet another reason why people flock from all over to spend time in this lovely seaside hamlet.
