Old Time Jam
TUESDAYS at 7.15pm
Hosted by Sarah Pirkle
This strings only* session is the sound of the Appalachian legacy that richly indwells the soul and soil of Knoxville. The musicians sit together and pick and strum familiar tunes on fiddles, guitars, and bass. We play Old Time fiddle tunes mostly, everyone jams at once and there are no breaks. Open to all lovers and players of music. We welcome dancers but please no tap shoes, as it can interfere with the session. No need to build up the courage to join in, just grab an instrument off the wall and take a seat.
*No percussion instruments please.
1ST AND 3RD THURSDAYS at 7.15pm
From the low central valleys to the high coastal mountains, music fills the pubs of Ireland. Guitar, harp, bodhran, flute, accordion, and dulcimer are the celtic sounds of old that combine to create a traditional and lively atmosphere every other Thursday night. Musicians play to enjoy and to preserve the cultural heritage that the Scots-Irish brought to America generations ago. Come and listen or join in! (Thanks Jason for the video!)
2ND AND 4TH THURSDAYS at 7.15pm
A proud tradition, Scots love nothing more than music and drink. The drink is strong and the music is steeped in the history of the green highlands and rocky cliffs. Whether lyrics or no lyrics, every song tells a story. The hills of East Tennessee are a home away from home for this style. Pull up a chair to listen or play along every other Thursday night.
SCOTTISH COUNTRY DANCE
1st SATURDAY at 4pm
Hosted by Cynthia West
Dancing is just as important as music in the Scottish tradition, and upbeat rhythms make for great foot stomping. Those that are more experienced can even present a well-practiced jig or reel! Whether you are watching or dancing, 1st Saturdays at Boy are overflowing with energy and fun.
