Come on down to play some Scandinavian music with us!

The format we're planning for this special evening will be starting with an acoustic "open mic" as an opportunity for those who'd like to prepare a few tunes to play and those who'd like to get more familiar with the style to get some exposure to it. We're hoping that musicians will play in a variety of ensembles from solos to duos or trios, maybe.

After the performances, we'll settle in to have an open format jam session. All levels welcome. Come join in even if you've never heard any Scandinavian music. We'll give a little guidance, but there won't be any teaching for this evening. Just opportunities to listen to the music and play along at whatever level you are able or willing.

Scandinavian music is often rich, harmony filled music, so there are ample opportunities for playing along with just simple chords if you can't get the melodies, at first.

Feel free to invite friends and pass this event along on Facebook! And best of all, it's entirely FREE! Please let us know if you think you'll be prepared to perform one to three tunes.

This will be in the BACK ROOM at Hancock Recreation Center and will happen at the same time as the Austin Barn Dancers Contra Dance and Jam Session in the front room. So, you could go back and forth between them ;-)
