Turtle Jam Session

November 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Turtle Jam, led by Colleen Freeman

1st, 3rd and 5th Thursdays, 6-8 pm

$10 donation

The Turtle Session is a bi-monthly guided session designed to familiarize intermediate musicians with the form and etiquette of a traditional session while also getting more comfortable playing tunes at a faster speed. A new tune is taught by ear on fiddle at the beginning of each session. We don’t use sheet music during the session, giving musicians an opportunity to develop strategies for tune acquisition, both on the fly and in their home practice. A range of genres are played, mainly Irish/Scottish, Oldtime/Bluegrass and Swedish/Norwegian with a few Swing tunes sprinkled in.

We meet at the Chuckanut Center, 103 Chuckanut Drive N. (in Fairhaven Park).

All instruments welcome!
