The Park Slope Old-Time and Bluegrass Jamboree

The morning was rainy, but the skies cleared in time for a perfect fall day, and the yard and beautiful old building of the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture filled with pickers. Veterans of the scene who’ve been playing for decades, kids with adorable miniature fiddles, folks from out of town and folks we play with several times a week. A great concert, opening with Rafe Stefanini, a brilliant old-time fiddler and banjo player from Italy, and his wife and daughter, and continuing with local and national stars. So crowded that you couldn’t find seats; I went back out into the yard to play some more and people were saying they could hardly get through the auditorium to leave. I should have taken more photos but I was too busy playing.

    Looks like a great time was had by all!

    A side note: I found out recently that one of the great advocates in the mental health recipient movement, Howie The Harp, got his name because he always carried a harmonica with him. Cool, huh? He started a peer advocacy and peer training program in Manhattan.
