Old Time Jamboree: December 8, 2012

Cyndy and Mrs. Goon play Ashokan Farewell, accompanied by Jason of The Wren & the Whistler, at Chicago’s Old Time Jamboree in June, 2012.

The next Old Time Jamboree has been scheduled! We’ll gather for old time tunes on December 8, 2012 at 7pm. The music-friendly folks at Dolce Casa Café  (4947 N Damen Ave) will provide their lovely space.

Find out more about what happens at the Old Time Jamboree here.

Our featured artist will be musician, teacher and folklorist, Paul Tyler. With twenty-two plus years teaching at the Old Town School of Folk Music, and just back from a teaching exchange in Finland, Paul will present a set of tunes, songs and stories.  This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to hear a wonderful musician in a very intimate setting.
