Charlotte Folk Society invites the public to its 7th Annual Old-Time Music Jam and Ice Cream Social at Charlotte Museum of History. The free event includes music, clogging, stories and free ice cream (while it lasts.) Charlotte Museum of History is celebrating Patriot Day (also free) the same day at the museum. Read on for details about Charlotte Folk Society’s Old-Time Music Jam & Ice Cream Social.
The Charlotte Folk Society’s 7th Annual Old-Time Music Jam and Ice Cream Social will take place on Saturday, September 7, 2013, 1 – 5 PM. Activities will take place on the grounds of the Hezekiah Alexander Homesite, 3500 Shamrock Drive, in east Charlotte. In case of rain, activities will move inside the Charlotte Museum of History, located at the same address. The Ice Cream Social is made possible with the support of our co-sponsors, Charlotte Museum of History, Storytellers Guild of Charlotte, and Letty’s on Shamrock. The event is free, family-friendly, and open to the public.
The Hezekiah Alexander Homesite provides the perfect setting for families to enjoy an old-fashioned summer afternoon. Activities include open jam sessions: Old-Time, Celtic, and Bluegrass. Visitors may also enjoy a song circle, clogging demonstration, and, of course, ice cream – as long as it lasts. Members of the Storytellers Guild of Charlotte will share another old-fashioned pastime – telling tales to listeners of all ages. Members of the Charlotte Appalachian Dulcimer Club will host a jam and offer visitors the opportunity to try out an instrument. Young visitors can join in jams with loaned rhythm instruments.
