Jam with the Squirrels

Fourth Sunday of every month, 5-7pm

Presented by Winslow Squirrel Jam

Join Winslow Squirrel Jam for an evening of music in the front room at Ozark Folkways. Bring an instrument, a singing voice, or just be prepared to do a little toe-tapping and hand-clapping. The songs are all familiar favorites, and lyrics and chord symbols will be projected on the big screen; everybody is encouraged to join in!

Most of the jammers have only been playing their instruments for a couple of years or less, so this is not a group that is going to intimidate a beginner — at the same time, experienced players will find themselves in a welcoming environment where their ability is recognized and appreciated. There’s something for everybody.

If you like, bring a snack and a beverage; this is not a concert, but rather a gathering of friends and neighbors looking to enjoy an evening of music and good company.

Admission is free to the public, although we encourage you to drop a few bucks in the tip jar to help pay the bills. For more information, just give us a call at 479-634-3791 or email us at info@ozarkfolkways.org.
