Bluegrass & Old Time Campfire Jam

August 7 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Bluegrass & Old Time Campfire Jam

Gather around the campfire for a time honored tradition- playing and enjoying music in the company of others in the great outdoors. Bring your preferred acoustic instrument (guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, dobro, drum, harmonica, dulcimer, vocals, dancing feet, etc.) and join the jam – or just come to listen! Local music historian and guitarist, Luke Cerny, will lead the jam session. Jam tunes don’t need to be in the Old Time or Bluegrass genres but should at least be simple/standard enough for most beginner/intermediate folks to “catch” on a pass or two. The jam will be held in a traditional circle with instrumentalists and song leaders/vocalists in the middle and folks just trying to learn or play rhythm on the outside. This program will be outdoors, with an indoor option if weather necessitates.

All ages welcome. Children under 18 should be accomanpied by an adult 18+.

This program is free to attend, but donations are greatly appreciated!

Pre-registration required by August 6 at 4:00 pm.

Diving into the Blues: Local Music History and the Delta Blues Workshop & Presentation

July 16 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Diving into the Blues: Local Music History and the Delta Blues Workshop & Presentation

Join local guitarist Luke Cerny for an interactive demonstration and practical workshop focused on demonstrating and teaching many of the approaches, techniques, and tools present in early American acoustic guitar styles as well as the artists who championed them – with a special focus on local music history and the Delta Blues, digging into the catalogues of artists such as Charley Patton, Skip James, Son House, and more.

If you play guitar (or are thinking about learning), please feel free to bring an acoustic guitar, capo, and tuner. Bring a slide as well, if you have one. If not, a selection of different sizes, shapes, and materials will be available to try out. Additional accessories to consider bringing are: plectrum (flatpick), thumbpick, and finger picks, but are not totally necessary if you don’t normally use them. You may want to bring a notebook and pen. If you don’t play guitar but are just a fan of the Blues, feel free to join us in actively appreciating some of the guitar styles and approaches that came out of the Mississippi Delta and surrounding regions in the early 20th century.

Who is this program for? Beginner to advanced guitar players and non-players curious about music history. Ages 14+ (teens under 18 must be accompanied by an adult)
