Music Under the Oaks


Open Acoustic Music Jam in Mandarin
Location: Mandarin Store and Post Office at Mandarin Community Club, 12471 Mandarin Rd.

The Mandarin Museum & Historical Society is hosting a monthly acoustic music jam at the historic Mandarin Store and Post Office. If you play a traditional acoustic instrument (guitar, banjo, mandolin, etc.) and enjoy singing or playing with others, you are invited to come out and play the first Sunday of each month from 2 – 4 pm.  The Store and Post Office, which illustrates life in rural Mandarin, will be open during this time for tours as well.

Depending on the weather, the jam will be held outside, or inside the old-time store. Either is a perfect setting to join other musicians in a round of sharing and playing together – under the old oaks on this beautiful historic property or inside the building that was the heart of Mandarin for many years.

If it’s been awhile since you’ve played, don’t worry. This is an open jam for participants at any level of experience. Dust off that instrument and join right in. Do bring your own chair and water, as we are limited in what we can provide at this location.

“Listeners” are welcome, but please bring your chairs too, and enjoy the beautiful music being made by local musicians. It will be a fun time.
