Dusty Strings Jam Leader, Sarah Comer is proud to serve as a link
in the chain connecting masters of the tradition with the next generation
of old-time fiddlers. Since starting her journey with the fiddle
in 1999, Sarah has entertained audiences from Northwest Folklife
Festival to Benaroya Hall, and taught for the Washington Old Time
Fiddlers Association, Pierce College, and Dusty Strings Music School.
For those new to the old-time jam scene the first half hour will
be common tunes like "Soldier's Joy" and "Old Joe
Clark", played at an easy-going tempo, then we'll pick up the
pace with a variety of Northwest fiddle tunes and turn it over to
the participants to start a few tunes of their own. Bring your fiddle,
guitar, mandolin, bass, (or other acoustic instrument) and come
enjoy making music with others!
