at Harry's Hardware

Sunday Afternoons - 12noon to 2pm 

Occurring every Sunday afternoon, the Old Time Jam Session at Harry's Hardware was launched September 10th, 2017, and is anchored by a handful of local stalwart

fiddle and banjo players.

 

The style of tunes leans toward the repertoire of West Virginia and North Carolina with a trace of Ithaca (NY) attitude and a smattering of New England, Midwest and Quebecois thrown in depending on players in attendance.  

 

All levels of proficiency are welcome. As per

session etiquette, if you are an absolute

beginner, please play on the periphery. 

The Cabot Old Time Jam Session Repertoire Vol. 2 is available for downloads!

In the liner notes, Dana writes, "This project kept me sane during the pandemic winter of 2020/21. I was missing the community and camaraderie of the folks who had been attending the Sunday afternoon jam sessions at Harry's Hardware since September 2017. Every Sunday, that is, until March 2020. This recording was intended to be not so much an artistic project, but rather, an archive and appreciation of some of the tunes we enjoy playing together."
