Join us (Julie Vallimont, Jon Cannon, and friends) to play wonderful tunes that just happen to not have many notes. Good for all levels. It's not a slow jam, but rather simple tunes at normal speed. Possibilities include jigs, polkas, slow reels, marches, French tunes, klezmer tunes, waltzes, and more. Bring a favorite tune to share!

Fiddlers: tired of playing the tune over and over? Let someone else take the melody and play some backup! Julie and Jon teach chord voicings and rhythms that can make a good fiddler into a great accompanist.
