SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTHI) – An area event is trying to get instruments into the hands of young musicians.

Saturday was the 5th Annual Jam For Jordan.

The jam is for children who can’t afford instruments. It also provides instruments into the Sullivan High School Music Program.

Musician Anthony Adams says the event is named after his friend, Jordan Monroe, who passed away in a car accident a few years ago.

“He was instrumental and he inspired me to play music,” Adams said, “gave me my first guitar and taught me how to play, and it was just something that he liked to do. He taught his nieces and nephews how to play piano or guitar, and he just loved to spread the gift of music.”

Adams says the event is growing every year, but would like to see it get even bigger!

If you’re musically inclined, or want to help, you can contact Adams through email (adamsanthony@hotmail, add “Jam For Jordan” in the subject line).
