The Pretty Shaky String Band is an East Lansing institution. Although referred to as a band, it is in fact one of the oldest open sessions in Michigan. Shaky's have been meeting each Wednesday night for over twenty five years. Many of Michigan's finest folk musicians are Shaky alumni.

The Shaky's are a friendly and laid back group. Musicians of all levels are welcome. A round robin format is followed, so everyone gets a chance to pick tunes. Originally strictly an old-timey session Shaky's has be evolved to also embrace some Celtic and French-Canadian influence.

A great place to tune up for the upcoming festival season, learn new tunes or share your favorites!
