The State Museum's Music Jam takes place on Thursdays, 12 noon-2 PM on the Fourth Floor. Everyone is welcome to play music or to listen to the invigorating dance music inspired by the Celtic tradition. Featured are jigs, reels, waltzes, hornpipes, and marches, but occasionally folk or popular songs are tossed into the mix depending on which musicians participate. Each person in the circle takes a turn choosing a tune and setting the pace.
In this way, the tunes vary in style, speed, and difficulty. Everyone learns and the audience is treated to live music. All levels of skill on any acoustic instruments are welcome. Some people read the music while others play by ear.
