All-Comers Tunes Jam

15 December 2019
4:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Seven Stars Center

Thanks so much to the folks from near and far who came to the September, October and November All-Comers Tunes Jams – good times!! Here’s a friendly reminder that the next Jam will be this Sunday, December 15th, 4-9PM+ at the Seven Stars Arts Center (5126 VT Rte 14, Sharon, VT 05065 – a ramp and elevator, accessible location)

Thank you as well for sharing this notice with anyone you think would be interested!

As always: it’s a free, inclusive and relaxed, all ages and levels welcome New England repertoire tunes jam in a democratic, sit-in style (Scottish, French Canadian, Irish, Cape Breton, Scandi, Old Timey etc.) We will go around the circle to allow each person to start a tune/small set or pass on their turn and all folks are welcome to play and work on picking up each tune by ear or sheet.

4 – 6 PM will be a slow jam to allow folks time to pick up the music by ear and then we will heat up to dance tempos 6-9PM ~ Fiddles, mandolins, cellos, guitars, ukuleles, banjos, flutes, accordions, harmonicas, recorders, concertinas, voice, percussion etc… come enjoy a laid-back community music gathering!

* We do encourage folks to bring goodies to share for our food table in the main hall upstairs where we will be playing * Feel free to stop by for as little or as long as you like! Also, dancers and listeners are very welcome as well 🙂

The next jam of this All-Comers series at Seven Stars will continue on the third Sundays into the new year:
