Open jam: All old-time musicians and listeners welcome!
Fiddle & banjo usually dominates these old-time music gatherings, but guitars, lap dulcimers, mandolins, bass, and even accordion and zither occasionally appear! Not sure what "Old-Time" is? Try this Wiki entry for starters: 'Reflecting the cultures that settled North America, the roots of old-time music are in the traditional musics of the British Isles (primarily Great Britain and Ireland), and Europe. African influences are notably found in instruments such as the banjo. In some regions French and German sources are also prominent.' While many of the sounds are clearly of European origin, others can be linked to African music.
