Every 1st Saturday, a once monthly old time jam, hosted by Martha Stone, $5, ages 8 and up. We will be playing acoustic Americana music, with an emphasis on old time Appalachian fiddle tunes. Old time is different from bluegrass in that no one takes a break (solo), everyone plays all the time, so you get a lot of practice! Our format is simple, each person in the group gets to choose a tune (you can pass), tell everyone what key it’s in, and off we go! Being polite is mandatory, we’re here to encourage, not criticize. This is not an instructional class, so you should already be able to play a few tunes up to speed on your instrument. It is homegrown music as it was meant to be and promises to be as enjoyable to all.
