Grab your banjo and head out to Mayday Brewery on Thursday, Jan. 12, for the inaugural Old Time Jam, a new all-ages, all-skill-level traditional music gathering. The event, slated to take place the second and fourth Thursday of each month, will focus on pre-1940s old-time, string band, jug band, country and blues music. Each gathering will meet from 6-8 p.m at 521 Old Salem Road.
“Knock the dust off that old banjo and restring that fiddle, but leave your drums and electric instruments at home, this is old time music,” says Josh Smith of the Glade City Rounders. “Folks should come out and dance or play, because you’ve never looked or sounded better than after a couple of Boro Blondes.”
