We meet on the third Saturday of June for our regular jam session where we play primarily contra dance tunes, Irish and old time songs. Bluegrass, gospel and other acoustic music are certainly welcome, we just tend towards the tunes in our tune book and the "Carpilation" book from the Carp Camp at Winfield.

Join this group and look in the files area to see sheet music and midi files for our regular tunes.
