Blackbird Music, Minneapolis Music Store Reviews

Overall Comments

Blackbird Music on Cedar Ave in Minneapolis is a nice neighborhood music store.  I'm taking Round Peak style lessons from Rob Daves at the store and attending their Adult beginner's jams.

Neal, who runs the jam, does a nice job.  It is a perfect starting point, with lots of advice and freedom to experiment.  Each week we get a good mix of fiddles, guitars, maybe a banjo, maybe a mando.  Neal makes it possible to start into the jam without a lot of investment; he loaned me books, capos, etc.

They have a decent selection of entry level banjos, and I'd expect to see some higher level banjo's as time goes on.

Great place for lessons, jams, and instruments.
