We’re an all levels, acoustic instrumental jam session focusing on tunes in the following traditions: Irish, English, New England Old Time, French Canadian, American Southern, and maybe even Scandinavian. We play tunes are those that are typically suitable for contra dancing or other traditional fiddle tunes. This group is intended to provide a musical home for folks interested in playing tunes with other musicians, learning to play by ear and overall increasing their own musical skill. It’s fun and welcoming to all ages (see venue for any 21+ restrictions) and levels of playing. We really welcome all levels and any acoustic instrument is welcome.
