Do You Like Old-Time Music? Catch the Flying Pig Fiddle and Banjo Jam

You can become a part of the beat at the music and dance jam happening at the Flying Pig Fiddle & Banjo! Join in the living tradition of southern Appalachian music played by ear, and learn the steps to Old-time dances in this fun and friendly atmosphere.

Bring your fiddle, 5-string banjo, guitar, mandolin, or home made/found rhythm instruments - and don’t forget your dancing shoes! If you want to put some pep in your weekend, the participating instructors will provide you with everything you need to have a rowdy good time. Learn how to build, find and play simple rhythm instruments such as washtub bass, washboard, fiddlesticks, pitchfork, limberjack, mouthbow, and many more. And they will also guide dancers through the easy-to-learn steps of old-time clogging and square dancing, filling the afternoon with welcoming fun. Curiosity, enthusiasm and inclination toward silliness and high spirits are encouraged!
