7pm – 9pm – Open Bardic Jam/Informal Dance

All instruments, musicians & performers are welcome to join

What is now referred to as “Jamming” is a very period technique. Most music was learned from one performer to the next without written music. Even today, jamming and creating a onetime unique piece of music, harmonies and variations is as fun and rewarding as it was in period.

(All levels are welcome ~ no prepared pieces required)
