Celtic Jam Sessions

in Western North Carolina

Celtic Jam Sessions

Western North Carolina has a rich tradition of Celtic, Irish, and Scottish Folk Music that has evolved over time into Mountain Music, Old Time, and Blue Grass with the addition of new instruments, playing styles, and cultural divergence. For those of you who would like to learn to play the original Celtic, Irish and Scottish folk tunes, there are numerous on-going and scheduled Celtic Jam Sessions in various towns throughout the Smoky Mountains. 

Here are some convenient lists which we try to keep current, but always call to confirm - especially during bad weather:
