French Canadian Tune Jam lead by Linda Breitag
2nd and 4th Saturday of the month  10:30am – 12:30pm
This semi-monthly jam is a great place to learn some French Canadian style tunes.  The first two tunes are taught and taken a slow pace.  After that you’re on your own.   Information on the musical style can be found here at this wiki.

Here’s a sampling of our Beginner’s Jam work.  Most of these songs are directly from The Parkin’ Lot Picker’s Songbook.
