Turtle Jam Session

June 20 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Turtle Jam meets monthly on the first and third Thursdays.

Musicians!

Feeling more confident in your playing and ready to let it rip but still not quite up to speed for a regular session? Then the Turtle Session is the place for you! The Turtle Session is a bi-monthly guided session lead by Colleen Freeman that is designed to familiarize intermediate musicians with the form and etiquette of a traditional session in a fun, open atmosphere where mistakes are welcome (that means you’re learning!). We don’t use sheet music during the session and tunes are presented rather than taught. This gives musicians an opportunity to develop strategies for tune acquisition, both on the fly and in their home practice. A range of fiddle styles are played, mainly Irish/Scottish, Oldtime/Bluegrass and Swedish/Norwegian.

$10/session payable at the door.
