Tuesday nights at 7 PM. If you are a musician looking for someone to play with or if you are someone who likes to listen to live music, here’s an opportunity to do both.
Old Time Music and Square Dance
The Jammers are local musicians who meet to learn to play folk, dance, Grand Old Opry, and other favorite music of past generations and we are delighted to share our facility with them to promote the living history of music that they enjoy working on. They are not a band for hire, it’s more like a back porch gathering of friends or family playing whatever instruments they have, square dancing and singing along when they know the words.
There may be an accordion, fiddles, mandolin, banjo, guitars, string bass, and a Dobro. This group plays for fun and to learn music. The skill level ranges from beginner to experienced performers who play in their own bands. Anyone with an instrument that is not amplified is welcome to join in.
One Room Schoolhouse & More!
The farm house has been fully restored and furnished in the period of the 1870s. It is believed to be the oldest dwelling in the Bradford Area. It remained in the Crook family for over 125 years. This historical property was the home of Erastus and Betsy Crook early pioneers in McKean County. Today the Crook Farm is cared for by the Bradford Landmark Society.
