Summary: Open Bardic Jam
Description: Everyone is welcome. All instruments, musicians, singers & performers are encouraged to participate. No prepared piece is necessary. What is now referred to as "Jamming" is a very period technique. Most music was learned from one player to the next without written music. Musicians would gather to play music, someone would start with something they had learned or created and other musicians would jump in and add the rest. Variations of melodies as well as the most popular tunes would become standardized and eventually written down. But, even today, jamming and creating a unique piece of music, harmonies and variations is as fun and rewarding as it was in period.
