The Old-Time Jam at Liam Flynn’s will take place on Tuesday from 7:30-10:30 p.m. This jam session is on a bi-weekly basis on Tuesday nights. Alternating Tuesdays we feature Blue Grass Sessions.922989_10152855426410594_1463157619_n-1

The Old Time jam is open to anyone who wants to play although this is going to be an advanced, “fast” jam. We’ll be playing old-time tunes up to speed. That being said, anyone is welcome to join the jam or just listen. My father Ken Kolodner (fiddle and hammered dulcimer) and I will lead the jam but others are more than welcome to lead tunes. We’ll just make sure things stay organized. For those of you who are beginners, I suggest you come on out, have a bite to eat or something to drink and at least listen to the jam. You’ll be surprised at how much you can learn just by listening.


The Blue Grass jam is free and open to those that love the music.

Facebook event page

Jean “Django” Reinhardt; 23 January 1910 – 16 May 1953) was a pioneering virtuoso jazz guitarist and composer.Reinhardt is often regarded as one of the greatest guitar players of all time and is the first important European jazz musician who made major contributions to the development of the idiom. Using only the index and middle fingers of his left hand on his solos (his third and fourth fingers were paralyzed after an injury in a fire), Reinhardt invented an entirely new style of jazz guitar technique (sometimes called ‘hot’ jazz guitar) that has since become a living musical tradition within French gypsy culture. With violinist Stéphane Grappelli, he co-founded the Quintette du Hot Club de France, described by critic Thom Jurek as “one of the most original bands in the history of recorded jazz.”[2] Reinhardt’s most popular compositions have become jazz standards, including “Minor Swing“, “Daphne”, “Belleville”, “Djangology”, “Swing ’42”, and “Nuages“.

Pablo is a Uruguayan native immigrating to the Eastern US in 2003. He discovered a passion for sculpture and painting three years ago. While working construction, he began using discarded materials for his sculptures but recently found a kinship with painting.  His art is an intermediary device to connect further with this newfound culture. His subjects include personal adaptations, social issues, and basic shared emotional experiences. Pablo is very grateful for the opportunity and the results which stimulate him to continue.  Thank you.

Irish Music Concert & Dance Workshops with Michael Tubridy of the Chieftains.
Born in Kilrush in County Clare in 1935, Michael Tubridy has played a vital role in the history of traditional Irish music and dance. In 1962, he was a founding member of the traditional Irish music group The Chieftains with whom he played the tin whistle, flute, and concertina. Michael remained a member of the group until 1979.Michael is also a dancer and teacher of old-time step dancing. He and his wife Celine learned from dancing master Dan Furey, who lived in Labasheeda in County Clare. They have been teaching these dances throughout Ireland and in other places as far away as Germany, France, and Japan.

After teaching a step dancing workshop, Michael will be playing a concert interspersed with stories about his youth in Clare, and his many years of musical experience, followed by an informal session.

Dance workshop 2-4, the concert from 5-6:30 and the session from 7-9:30, All ages, Free
