“Music of the folks, by the folks, and for the folks!” Do you have a secret desire to play music with others but don't have time for a major commitment to a performance group?  Does an untouched instrument lurk in your closet and call out to you?  Would you like to improve your music skills in a supportive environment? We are a continuing ensemble group that plays traditional acoustic music from all over the world. The class is friendly and low-key.  Musicians at all skill levels are accommodated, and beginners are welcome.  Most instruments work well with the group, but if your instrument is louder than most contact the instructor prior to registering for the class.
