In the world of traditional acoustic music in the big city, the Ponkiesburg Pickin' Party is one of the longest running weekly jams. It was founded way back in October 2000 by Barbara Brousal, a Brooklyn native and wonderful songwriter/singer/guitarist/mandolinist. It was Barbara's idea for a few close friends to get together on Sundays and sit around and play traditional songs, with an emphasis on fun sing-a-long tunes that everyone can enjoy, regardless of skill level. After looking around the neighborhood and inquiring at some local taverns, she came up short.

This jam is primarily based on contra dance music, using the Portland Collections I and II, the new Connecticut Sound tunebook, the Waltz Books I, II and III, the Fiddlers' Fakebook, and the New England Fiddlers' Repertoire. We go around the circle, and people can call a tune to play. They set the tempo they wish, and then the rest of the group plays along with them. We normally play each song through 3 times, and then the next person in the circle chooses the next song.
