September 4, 2010

Today was a somewhat busy day. After wishing my friend Kim Bird a happy birthday, I went to listen to the jam session with the family.

Emily didn't play this time but John and Meagan did. There was a pretty good variety of instruments represented by the time the session ended. They had around 3-4 fiddles/violins, hammered dulcimer (that is what John is playing), penny whistle, guitars, and harmonicas. The group is called something like Old Time Fiddlers, and they go out to perform at various state fairs and other places. It was quite enjoyable to listen to them and the time went rapidly. This was a jam session so you also heard mistakes and restarts, etc.

Another nice thing about the group is that you have all ages represented.
