MMHS must cancel all activities from March 13 until further notice due to COVID-19 concerns.
The Mandarin Museum & Historical Society hosts a monthly acoustic music jam at the Walter Jones Historical Park. 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 Mandarin Museum and 1898 St. Joseph’s Mission Schoolhouse for African-American Children, which illustrate some of the rich history of Mandarin, will be open during this time as well.
The event is typically held on the first Sunday of each month. This is an outdoor event, so expect weather cancellation for rain or cold. Generally, however, it 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. This event is presented in partnership with the North Florida Folk Network.
If it has 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! “Listeners” are welcome, and artists are invited to come and paint. Do bring your own chair and water, as we are limited in what we can provide at this location.
