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.
