augusta icehouse old time jam

Intensive, week-long classes in a variety of old-time instruments, styles, & levels. Special presentations & lots of jamming. Registration is required.

October Old-Time Week 2014 brings an wonderful array of talent to Augusta. This year Frank Lee teaches intermediate/advanced old-time banjo, and Carl Jones teaches the beginning/intermediate banjo class. West Virginia’s Dave Bing and Jesse Milnes each teach intermediate/advanced level old-time fiddle; and Galax, Virginia, resident Erynn Marshall teaches the beginning/intermediate level fiddle class. Bob Heyer teaches old-time guitar (all levels). In addition to these 5-day classes, there will be special musical presentations and workshops and, and, of course, plenty of jamming.

The week wraps up with the 21st Annual Augusta Old-Time Fiddlers’ Reunion featuring a unique square dance on Friday evening; performances by older generation master fiddlers and younger accomplished fiddlers from all over West Virginia all day Saturday; and a gospel sing on Sunday morning.

All classes are intended for those who can already play their instrument to some extent and are ready to start learning Old-Time style, technique, and repertoire.
