old time cider jam

Western Cider | 501 North California Street, Missoula, Montana 59802

First Wednesday of each month

Bring your fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin, bass, banjo-uke, or ukulele to the old time cider jam, where the cider is cold and the tunes are hot. This is an old time specific jam for folks looking to learn new tunes and saw along to old chestnuts.


old time slow jam

Imagine Nation Brewing | 1151 North Broadway, Missoula, Montana 59802

Third or second Sunday of each month

This jam is designed for beginner and intermediate musicians, kids, and newcomers to old time music. Experienced players will take a tune and slow it way down so you can work on your boom-chuck, bump-ditty, alternating bass line, or bass line runs. Come learn, practice, and play along at this casual, fun, slow jam.

square dances

Our square dances are in the Southern Appalachian community tradition. It’s all about having a good time, mingling, and meeting new folks. And it’s a foot-stomping good time. We dance to live old time music and a caller who teaches the dances as you go. No experienced needed. As we say, it’s the most fun when you mess up. All ages are welcome, too, and no partner necessary. Come as you are, dance as you are. Join in on the tomfoolery and fun.
