Mud City Old-Time Music Jam: New Location!

The monthly old-time jam will be now be at Viking Braggot Taproom at 520 Commercial St. in Eugene, OR on the 2nd Thursday of each month from 7-9:30pm

The open community jam at Viking Braggot Taproom will feature a different set of local artists each month. The featured group will lead musicians through selections from their repertoire of traditional fiddle tunes and songs. This jam is open to all, but tunes will be played up to speed - if you're interested in attending the monthly Mud City slow jam, visit this link and we’ll get you all the info!

We will ask participants to contribute to a tip jar and all proceeds will go directly to the featured jam hosts. We also ask participants to commit to purchasing at least one drink or snack from the venue and leaving a little something for the kind staff there, as well. (These contributions are voluntary, but if you value having a warm, dry, fun place to jam, we are asking you to please bring a little cash to share!) It will be a little different from the format of the previous jam at the Foundry, so come on down and see shred with us!!!

We’ve been hosting old-time jams in Eugene since 2011!  Are you new to old-time music or jamming? Visit our resources page for lots of great information.

The Mud City calendar lists old-time jams open to the community, as well as select music events, dances and performances. We love to promote local and visiting old-time musicians and performers (or other closely-related genres)!
