Tonight: Folk Jam
Time: 7:30 pm
It’s Tuesday and the instruments are out! A chilly winter’s day folk jam is here to warm you up! Join a host of friends up here as they jam without amps or mics. It’s a little thing we like to call the Folk Jam: mandolins, guitars, simple percussion, fiddles, etc. Lovely stuff.
And you might just find our good friend Bill Watkins involved too. Bill has a new website, by the way: www.keltcom.com…though I suspect that if you find him tonight it will be wallowing in pain as the poor devil has given his back a throw. Wish him well! Take two Guiness and call for another, Bill.
