My story is one many of you can identify with – an uplifting look at a life that I am determined to live well, despite all the obstacles I have been dealt. At the heart of the story is the idea of LIVING with cancer. It took eight years to correctly diagnose my rare disease, Carcinoid/ Neuroendocrine Tumors. Then, they said I would die in just a few more years. That was 18 years ago, and here I am! How have I faired? Very well. Read the book to find out how I have lived a happy life, even with cancer.

Would you help to spread the positive word by telling your friends, by gifting the book, and by posting a review for other readers on the www.amazon.com  page? We know how valuable a positive recommendation can be.

                          Yes, there is a lot of Bluegrass music in my book!

Dear Bluegrass Friends,

All good things must come to an end. 

We started hosting weekly acoustic Bluegrass music jam sessions in 1977 in our Virginia home.  These continued for six (6) years until we moved to Arizona in 1983 and immediately joined the Arizona Bluegrass Association.  At that time there was NOT an open-to-all jam anywhere in the Phoenix area.

We hosted these jams in our home weekly from August 1983 thru December 2008.  These weekly jams were in our home for a total of 31 years which is quite a commitment.  Starting in January 2009 we moved to once a month jam sessions held on the Second Wednesday evening from 7 to 10 p.m.  Now after much thought and discussion the December 2012 jam session was the last.  Four (4) years of monthly jams for a total of hosting jams in our home for 35 years!  Now there are additional jams in the Valley of the Sun but still ours was the only one in a private home. 

We have met so many nice people, have made great friends, and many bands have formed after meeting one another at our jam; we shall miss the jams and these wonderful musicians.

Susan shall continue to update the Bluegrass section of her web site www.carcinoidinfo.info, and continue sending information to all of her Bluegrass mailing lists so do send her your information / updates if you would like for her to share them.

We say THANK YOU to everyone who ever attended one of our jams over the past 35 years!  We sincerely hope we can all stay in touch to play and or enjoy traditional acoustic Bluegrass music.

Howard and “Sunny Susan” Anderson

 Anderson’s Traditional Acoustic BLUEGRASS Jam Sessions
                      Wednesday evenings - 7 P.M. until 10 P.M.
                                    in Tempe, Arizona

After 35 years we have stopped hosting jams in our home.

I am a former Vice-President (1985-1986), Secretary (1986-1987), and board
member (1984-1985) of The Arizona Bluegrass Association (ABA).

Pioneer Living History Village presented us with an award for our dedication and
devotion to Bluegrass music in Arizona, on April 2, 2005.  We had no idea this was
going to happen.  We appreciate the certificate and all of our wonderful Bluegrass
friends very much!  See photo of the certificate far below on this page.

The ABMA presented us their Recognition Award April 20, 2002 -- quite
an honor!
   See the text of presentation further down this page.

The ABA voted us the 1994 Bluegrassers of the year -- quite an honor!

There are currently two groups that promote Bluegrass music in Arizona,
that I know of, they are: The Arizona Bluegrass Association (ABA), and
The Desert Bluegrass Association. 

Bluegrass music evolved from traditional folk music in southern Appalachia
through immigrants from the British Isles. It is strictly acoustical, with no
electrified or amplified instruments. The basic bluegrass band always has a
five-string banjo, a mandolin, a fiddle, a guitar, an upright bass and occasionally
a dobro. Bill Monroe is considered the "father of Bluegrass music" with The 
Stanley Brothers (Ralph and Carter) not far behind.

Randy Cordova of The Arizona Republic did a superb article about our jams,
with photographs by Emmanuel Loranzo, that was the front page story in the
Smart Living section on Friday, 23 Nov. 2001"Bluegrass jams: Tempe couple
open their home for weekly gatherings"

Bluegrass music is performed typically by singing a verse, a chorus, and then
an instrument break. A break is when an instrument or a vocalist solos and
the other musicians fade into the background to let the soloist show off his
or her licks. The chorus is often sung in three- or four-part harmony, and each
break is usually done by a different instrument. Bluegrass with its high,
lonesome sound, has often been called folk music in overdrive.

25 Years of Weekly Bluegrass Jam Sessions (1983 - 2008)

 Twenty-Fifth Anniversary of Anderson’s Weekly, Open-To-All,
           Traditional, Acoustic, Bluegrass Jam Sessions

                             by Susan L. Anderson

We lived in northern Virginia in a suburb of Washington, D.C. for nine years (1974 - 1983). 
At that time Washington, D.C. was known as the "Bluegrass Capital of the world", with
Bluegrass being performed at The Birchmere, Wolf Trap Farm National Park for the
Performing Arts, even the Kennedy Center, and other venues.  American University,
was broadcasting 48 hours of Bluegrass music every week on their radio station WAMU. 
Many bands worked out of the Washington, D.C. area: The Country Gentlemen, Bill
Harrell, The Seldom Scene, Ricky Skaggs and Boone Creek, and many others.  We belonged
to The Capitol Area Bluegrass and Old Time Music Association (CABOMA), and the
Tri-State Bluegrass Association (Virginia, Maryland, and West Virginia).  Over the years
we attended many Bluegrass Festivals in Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Delaware. 
We started once a week open jam sessions in our Virginia home in 1977 and continued
until we moved to Arizona in the spring of 1983.

With our move to Arizona we were concerned about the amount of Bluegrass music we
would find.  We immediately joined the only two organizations (at that time 1983)
The Arizona Bluegrass Association (ABA) and the Arizona Pickers and Grinners Society
(AP&GS), and attended jams of both organizations.  Compared to the east coast there
was very little Bluegrass music available here in Arizona, although it has gotten better over
the years.  Later, after they  were formed, we joined the Arizona Bluegrass & Old
Time Musicians Associations (ABMA) and the Desert Bluegrass Association (DBA).

In order to have a dependable, open-to-all, regularly scheduled place for Bluegrass musicians
to play traditional acoustic music we opened our home in Arizona starting in August 1983 for
a jam session every week, and have continued since then.  In August 2008 these weekly jams
will have been on-going for more than 25 years here in Arizona, plus 6 years before that in Virginia,
for a total of 31 years that we have been hosting Bluegrass jam sessions in our home. We plan
to continue hosting weekly jam sessions as long as people are willing to come, which appears
to be decades!  We rarely cancel a jam, but do not meet the night before Thanksgiving, or the
week of Christmas and just before New Years. 

In Dec. 1983 I started keeping attendance of the pickers and later started counting how many
grinners (listeners) were in attendance.  I have a notebook with these sheets only, and another
large bulging notebook with information (name, address, phone and now e-mail address) of
the pickers who attend, or have attended, our jam sessions.  The average number of pickers
each week: 1985, 7; in 1987, 12; in 1995, 10; and in 2002, 16.

We are always glad to have new people attend our Wednesday evening Bluegrass
jam sessions, either as pickers or as grinners (listeners), because people move (due to work),
retire and move, die, or their situation changes and they move on to something else.  Some
of the pickers from the very early years were:  Jack Bernath, Robert Beene, Keith Olds,
Harold Dilley, Dennis Howe, Karl Maerz, Tom Kruck, Mark Miner, Dave Lawrence, Bill Breen,
Paul Wilson, Tim Pillow and too many others to name.

We start at 7 p.m. every Wednesday and end at 10 p.m. as it is a work night.  The flavor of
the jam changes a bit over the evening depending on who is here.  Some people come at 7 p.m.
and leave about 8:30 p.m.; others do not arrive until 8 p.m. or later and stay until 10.  Therefore
I tell new people, if they do not like the songs being played early in the evening, or if they feel
there are too many musicians, stick around because by 9 p.m. it will be a totally different jam
session.  They are all good, but each one is a bit different due to the make‑up of the participants.

The musicians stand in a circle (so people need to bring an instrument strap), unless they have
a real physical reason to be seated (everyone is tired after work, but....) and that is well understood. 
When standing it is easier to move to let new arrivals into the circle than if everyone is seated. 
The jams are democratic; everyone has the opportunity to "shine" playing and/or singing
their Bluegrass song of choice.


Traditional Acoustic Bluegrass instruments: Guitar, Fiddle, Mandolin, 5-String Banjo,
Upright Bass and Dobro.

The jams are held in our living room and dining room.  I (Susan) place ice, plastic cups, soft
drinks, plus some nibble candy and information sheets on the dining room table -- it is
self-service.  We do not serve food at the weekly jams as musicians cannot play well if
they have sticky or greasy fingers.  The music instrument cases are placed in the family room. 

Our front door is unlocked as we are unable to hear the door bell while the music is being
played and sung.  I sit where I can see if someone has come to the front door, and try to
welcome everyone as they come in, plus make first time people feel welcome.  Many beginners
have come over the years and stood in the background watching the fingering until
they had practiced enough to feel comfortable to join in.

Do not be mistaken this is not a beginner jam session, all are welcome, but the level of music
skill is normally high.  Most of the regular attendees have a great deal of tolerance and are
willing to assist others, if the person is agreeable to instruction. 

NO drinking, NO smoking, just pickin', grinnin', and good fellowship with traditional Bluegrass music!

The jams are democratic; everyone has the opportunity to "shine" playing and/or
signing their Bluegrass song of choice.
  Bluegrass music is performed typically by
singing a verse, a chorus, and then an instrument break. A break is when an instrument
or a vocalist solos and the other musicians fade into the background to let the soloist
show off his or her licks. The chorus is often sung in three‑ or four‑part harmony, and
each break is usually done by a different instrument. Bluegrass with its high, lonesome
sound has often been called folk music in overdrive.

Many of us enjoy classical, jazz and many kinds of music, but it must be acoustic
and traditional Bluegrass ONLY on Wednesday evenings.  Therefore no country and
western, no Texas swing, no old time. If Ralph Stanley or Ralph and Carter Stanley
did it, then it is Traditional Bluegrass, as is most (but not all) of Bill Monroe's, and the
most recent of Ricky Skaggs.  The attendees are always helpful to someone who knows
another kind of music, but wants to learn to play Bluegrass.

We appreciate and are proud of the three plaques hanging in our dining room.  The ABA
membership voted us (Howard and Susan Anderson) the 1994 "Bluegrassers of the year". 
The ABMA presented each of us their “Recognition Awards“ in April 2002.  All of these
are quite an honor!

I prepare a schedule of our jams and basic information, one year in advance.  I then mail
it to regular attendees, and pay to have the schedule/flyer printed in the newsletters
of the Arizona Bluegrass Association (ABA).  This schedule/flyer is also in the booths of
the ABA and Jam Pak Blues "N" Grass Neighborhood  Band and they give it to
interested people attending Bluegrass festivals in Arizona and California. 

A large computer mailing-list is maintained of those people who have an interest in Bluegrass
music.  I send emails with information about jam sessions (in the Phoenix, Tucson and
Flagstaff areas), festivals (in AZ and CA), concerts, camp-outs, newspaper and magazine
articles, notice when someone special is scheduled to appear on T-V, sad news when
someone dies, and other information of interest to those who are involved with Bluegrass
music.  I also maintain my web page and the very large amount of email generated by the page.

I, Susan, am a former Vice‑President, Secretary, and board member of The Arizona
Bluegrass Association (ABA), and one section on my web page is devoted to Bluegrass.

Susan Anderson 13th Anniversary of First Carcinoid Patient

This beautiful plaque was presented to us, Howard and Susan,
at the annual ABA meeting, dinner and jam on 11/22/2008.
It was unexpected and a total surprise,!  We appreciated
very much! 


Above picture presented to us by Jam Pak Blues 'N' Grass Neighborhood Band.

+ + + + + + + + + +

Two Bluegrass Associations (ABA and ABMA) have honored us for support of traditional acoustic Bluegrass music.  Both awards and the citation from the ABMA are shown below. (ABMA in 2002 and ABA in 1994).  Pioneer Living History Village honored us in 2005, copy of certificate is also below.

Due to being in FL, I missed the annual meeting on 20 April 2002 of the ABMA  (Arizona Bluegrass Musicians Association).   My husband attended and we had a major surprise -- the AMBA presented plaques to both of us (both accepted by Howard), we had no clue that something this special was in the works.  Most of us in my age group were raised NOT to blow our own horns, but I shall be brash and copy the words that Monique D. read when the two plaques were presented to Howard for himself and for me.


Each year the ABMA Board and officers recognize one or more members who have been instrumental in furthering our mission of promoting and preserving bluegrass in this community.

This year we would like to recognize Howard and Susan Anderson individually for doing just that.

As most of you know, Howard and Susan have hosted a traditional jam in their home just about every week since 1983.  This has
been a mainstay in he Valley that is, unfortunately, sometimes taken for granted.  These are people who truly enjoy bluegrass and enjoy sharing it with others.  Many of us have come to count on this as we count on both Howard and Susan, individually, for many other things.

For instance, Susan has been invaluable in her commitment to getting the printed word out to members and to others in our
community regarding bluegrass happenings.  Susan's personal book of contacts and willingness to share them is the glue that keeps many of us together in our pursuit of this music we all enjoy.  Many think of Susan as the "hub" for bluegrass and we can never thank her enough for what she does.  Her commitment is unquestionable.

Howard has been a great help with our website and has come to the rescue more than once on other computer issues.  Howard's
dedication as a musician and contribution as a mentor to other musicians is hard to quantify.  Over the years, Howard has taken many people under his wing and nurtures the traditional bluegrass in all of us.  Time and again, we hear about grinners who become interested in playing an instrument after sitting at a jam with Howard Anderson.

Howard and Susan, in addition to what you give to the community everyday, we also want to thank you for your constancy in
supporting the ABMA's programs and activities both in spirit and financially.  You are both very important to the ABMA.

You can both be very proud that you are integral in preserving and promoting traditional bluegrass music in the Valley.  Thank you from the ABMA.

     NOTE:  Valley means Valley of the Sun, the Phoenix, AZ, metro area.  Susan's e-mail lists cover the whole state of AZ for those who have an interest in Bluegrass music.  The Anderson's held weekly jams for six (6) in VA before moving to AZ in spring of 1983.

Since 1996 --- when I first located others with Carcinoid --- I have answered
every email sent to me, although some replies were delayed longer than I liked.
I am NO longer able to reply to all e-mails due to the volume and other things

Since my husband "retired" I am away from my computer for days, and
