The library will hold a special “Old-Time Jam at the Library” in the auditorium on Sunday, Sept. 9, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. This monthly jam circle is led by teachers, performers, and other lovers of Appalachian music in a supportive and friendly learning environment. Participants, who already know how to play their instruments at some level—fiddle, mandolin, banjo, dulcimer, guitar—learn to play traditional old-time music with others for fun and fellowship. Future jams will be held Oct. 14, Nov. 11 and Dec. 9. Donations support these jams. For more information, please contact the Fayette County Cultural Trust at 724-320-6392.
