Old Time Music Players of Maine celebrates American String band music and the
cultures that brought us those traditions. Unstructured, informal and entertaining, we
welcome all players to share in song, dance, story telling and great melodies from that old time music tradition.
The Old Time Music Camp Out and the Bluegrass Festival
This years Strung Together Music Jam Campout will be held on the coast of Searsport, Maine, September 17-19th, 2021.
The OT & Bluegrass Jam weekend begins Friday afternoon with an OT Jam and banjo workshop followed by our world famous Strung Together wood fired pizza bar and concert. The jams will take place in different areas in the park but close enough to give all participants easy access to both jam circles.
An additional component of this year’s Campout is an introduction to the Montville Project– learning & playing Essential New England Dance Tunes under the guidance of George Fowler, Art Bryan and Fred White. This will be a one hour or so learning session on Saturday with a live dance on Sunday. Dancing will be lead by Chrissy Fowler and the Belfast Flying Shoes ensemble.
This year we are jamming around the grounds under tents, porches, trees and other canopies. Designated spaces will be laid out for each style of music, with unlimited spots to hold you own jam.
