Tom Bogardus elicits a haunting noise from a saw blade during an Americana Music Academy acoustic jam session. Bogardus, who has played the instrument for 14 years, joined about 20 others playing guitars, fiddles, harmonicas and mandolins Saturday afternoon at Aimee's Coffee House, 1025 A Mass. The group gathers weekly and plays a wide variety of music, from classic rock tunes to bluegrass and theme songs.
