This is the 14th year we've been putting on this small old-time music campout gathering near to Albany, New York. If you are in the area, this event could offer the possibility of a 'mini merry minstrel meetup'!
Anywhere between 100-200 old-time musicians gather to camp and play for the weekend...potluck in the old Dutch barn on Saturday evening, very friendly.
Though the main focus is old-time music, as you can see from the photos of past years, jamming takes various forms, and minstrel players are very welcome to join the fun! I'll be bringing my Bell Stichter minstrel banjo, and maybe a tambourine or a set of bones tucked in my sack too. Hope to see a few minstrel friends there!
