Old-Time Jam im McGee’s Pub — Zürich, Wiedikon

19 Dez

We are a small group of musicians who play acoustic music in the American old-time style – think Appalachian string band music with fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin and stand-up bass. We hold a monthly jam in the Wiedikon neighborhood of Zurich and we invite you to join us to play, learn or listen. If you play one of the instruments above and you can pick up tunes easily (or already know some old-time repertoire), come to the jam session and play. We’ll start slower so that you can pick up the tune. The great thing about old-time music is that we play the melody over and over again, so it’s easy to join in. If you like to sing, join in on the singing songs. If you would just like to listen to an entrancing form of traditional music and have a beer, bring your friends and enjoy. This is meant to be a low-key jam session and not a stage performance.

We would like to keep the jam strictly to the old-time American style and repertoire of playing – which is a bit different than Irish music, Bluegrass or folk songs (though elements of each of these genres may appear)!  If this is something you might be interested in, we hope you’ll come and find out what old-time music is all about.
