Event Details

Join Flying Pig Fiddle & Banjo on fourth Saturdays for an exuberant music and dance jam in the living tradition of southern Appalachian Old-time music played by ear. Bring your fiddle, 5-string banjo, guitar, mandolin, dancing shoes, or home made/found rhythm instruments. Also consider bringing innocent bystanders who need a dose of rowdy old-time, taught, walked and danced southern squares. Instruction by Dave Losure and Mary Schaeffer-Losure will be given according to participant desires:  — Learning tunes and playing nice together.  — Building, finding and playing instruments of rhythm such as washtub bass, washboard, fiddlesticks, pitchfork, limberjack, mouthbow and more.  — Old-time clogging.  — Southern Old-time square dance and dance calling.  All ages are welcome. Acoustic stringed instrument players will need basic playing skills, ability to tune the instrument. Experience the freedom of paperless music. Curiosity, enthusiasm and inclination toward silliness and high spirits encouraged! Audio recording devices are permitted. For further information, please contact Flying Pig Fiddle & Banjo at 515.689.1434 or losuredr@me.com. Admission $7 musicians and audience, at the door. Come on down to the 4th Street Theatre for an afternoon of relaxed, straight ahead fun!
