Cape Cod Old Time Jam

FUTURE DATES ON HIATUS DUE TO CORONAVIRUS CONCERNS (as all sessions, jams, dances, and meetings should be)
Stay well and keep playing.
Maybe we can arrange some online playing...

Pam and Reese have revived the CCOTJ in September 2017, with a usually monthly evening or afternoon session, currently in Brewster.
Begun as an occasional Old Time Jam in late 2009, it faded out after a while. Sessions were often on the last Saturday evening of the month in the Lower Cape - frequently Orleans, but it did travel around a little and sometimes was in the afternoon. We try to play in one key at a time, so that cross tuned instruments only needed major retuning for key changes, but it doesn't always work out that way.

Gatherings have been as small as 3 to around 10 or 12 players, and sometimes non-playing friends. Non-traditional instruments often take part (e.g. 4 string banjo, octave mandolin, cello, flutes, whistles, recorders, northumbrian small pipes, etc) as some players come from other genres: Folk, Irish, Scottish, Jug Band, Classical, Mexican, etc. 

Next Old Time Jam will be Saturday, March 21, 2020
6pm Potluck (optional)
7-9pm or so Old Time Jam
