We promote old time fiddle music in a friendly, sociable environment as a source of recreation for club members and their friends through weekly gatherings at our local Edmonton leased hall sites. The jams also assist in the development of young and older amateur musicians by providing a safe performance opportunity.
We are very pleased to announce that the long COVID shut down is over and we will be restarting in-person music jams at Pleasantview Hall on Monday nights, beginning July 5. We will be following the City of Edmonton guidelines about protocols to follow when larger groups get together inside. This means that at least for the first two weeks after we open, please bring your facemask in case you are still required to wear it (and hope that it is no longer necessary). All the same, we encourage anyone to continue to use their facemask for as long as they want if they feel more comfortable with it. Come join us from 7:00-10:00 pm Monday July 5 for some great old time fiddle music and a warm welcome back!!
Session Times: On Monday nights from 7:00-9:00 p.m. join us at Pleasantview Community Hall on 10860 57 Avenue for an acoustic jam circle.
There is a small door fee each week for everyone who attends. Hall and facilities are wheelchair accessible.
We are all “volunteers” so everyone attending is encouraged to take a turn with setup, take down or other small chores that contribute to the smooth weekly operation of the jam.
Musicians new to our circle are welcome to try out our jams and are invited to sign up as a member if they decide to come in regularly to play.
