Come and join us if you are interested in the American style of old-time music (think Appalachian string bands, O Brother Where Art Thou). The jam session is open to musicians of all levels on fiddle, guitar, banjo, mandolin or stand-up bass. We love pickers and listeners!

Re: Live jam session - old-time American music

This is the first time I have read this notice. I hope I get a chance to come next month. I brought a mandolin with me from the States, but I am not very good. But if someone lends me the use of their guitar...
Anyway, I will try to make it in October.

This sounds like a lot of fun! I was wondering if you could mention some of the songs you play, would love to get up to speed on my guitar so I could join you one day! Thanks!

Re: Live jam session - old-time American music

Thanks for the message. We have posted a list if repertoire, chord charts and a few recordings at www.oldtimemusic.ch

If you would like more information, PM me for location of a slow jam where we learn tunes at a slower pace. Would love to have you at one of the sessions!
