Jan 3rd, Wed, 7:00 Old Time Jam 
with Joanne Pontrello
Is your new years resolution to learn how to play the instrument you have tucked away in a closet? Well get it out and come on over to the Quimper Grange Old Time Jam. Beginners as well as folks who have been playing for years are welcome.

The first Old Time Jam of the year will be led by Joanne Pontrello who plans to play a mix of tunes including some from JP Fraley. Joanne will start with Fraley's "Sally Ann" in the key of A (standard tuning). As is customary at our Old Time Jam the first tune will be broken down for easy learning and then we'll play at a moderate pace for the rest of the jam.

Snacks to share are appreciated and a $1-2 donation is requested to help pay for heating the hall.

Doors open at 6:45
