Folk music includes the wealth of songs that we play and sing for our own enjoyment. This acoustic music is not performance art - no need to rehearse or arrange before you join in.  Our American traditional folk repertoire draws from blues and ballads, lullabies, work songs, dance music and more, and the Hammonds love to help this music thrive.  You’ll know some of it already, and the Hammonds will make it easy for you to be part of the music making, even when you’re hearing the song for the first time.


Guided Folk Jam with the Hammonds  (18 years-adult)  NEW!  
Jam sessions can be intimidating. Learn how to hold your own, recognize keys and chord changes, and fit right in. We'll also cover the etiquette and guidance of jams. We'll help you play "off the page," offer some individual coaching, and mostly we'll play, play, play! All acoustic folk instruments are welcome.  (Skill level - for those who feel comfortable playing at least a few tunes on their instrument).
