This Saturday, December 3, The Wren & The Whistler are hosting the first-ever Chicago’s Old Time Jamboree. We will kick off the evening with a few tunes and then turn it over to the Open Stage. Musicians of all levels —especially beginners— can come up and play a tune. We’ll have a backing band of seasoned professionals (or you can bring your own accompaniment, or play a solo).
Tell ‘Em Henry will play a full set starting around 8:30pm.
We are so excited to put this event together! There are lots of opportunities to play Old Time Music in our community, but none quite like this. For some musicians, stepping onto the Open Stage will be their first time ever performing in front of an audience. Some folks have played at jam sessions and class graduations, but never on their own. Others may just want to share a new tune with the community. All are welcome to participate. Or just come and enjoy the music! The Jamboree is a place to celebrate Old Time Music and the wonderful people in our community.
So come on out this Saturday to Chicago’s Old Time Jamboree!
