TUESDAY
Staving Music and the Folk Jam

Staving Music: from 7:00-8:00 pm, we encourage you to bring a broom handle, wooden spoon and cutting board and learn how to create the rythms of our grandmothers as they did the magical work of churning, spinning, and herding. Learn folk songs in Norwegian, Old Norse, and rune charms as we play with the rhythms of life. For more information: http://karitauring.com

Folk Jam: Release the hounds! Take part in an open jam without amps or mics. It’s a little thing we like to call the Folk Jam: mandolins, guitars, simple percussion, fiddles, etc. Fantastic stuff. See you tonight!
