We look forward to seeing you then!
You have found the home page of the Old Time Slow Jam, a monthly meeting for people interested in Old Time American folk music who like to play at a steady pace. Players and listeners all welcome!
Please check out our upcoming sessions, and if you’re interested come along!
You may have found this site by mistake and wondering what is Old Time and what’s a Slow Jam? Old Time is a form of American folk music. The main instruments are fiddle, banjo (generally played clawhammer style) and guitar. The addition of double bass is also common. Other instruments can also blend in well with this style of music. We are always happy to welcome players of mandolin, ukulele, autoharp, and percussion such as spoons, bones, jaw harp etc,
Speed is not of the essence, it's the playing together that counts!
For more experienced players, the Old Time Folk Jam, formerly at the Shakespeare’s Head, has sessions at the Prince of Wales Feathers near Warren Street tube station. For further details please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Our sincere thanks to the Prince of Wales Feathers and to The Cock Tavern for being such wonderful hosts.
