Since 2015, Annie has been organizing a monthly early jazz & swing jam in cooperation with Swing Asheville, the local swing dance organization. She learned to play jazz by playing with others, and was lucky enough to have some extraordinary musicians who jammed with her while she figured out the style. Wanting to increase the pool of musicians (and to get more women playing jazz!), she decided to start up this jam so that others could have the same opportunity to learn.
