If you come by Story and Song Bookstore Bistro on the third Sunday of most every month, you’ll hear a cacophony of sound. Guitars strumming, banjos tuning, fingers plucking away at violin strings, until one fiddle takes charge and the courtyard erupts into music without a sheet of music in sight. Old Time music played at the FBOTJ (Fernandina Beach Old Time Jam) blends traditions brought to America by early European settlers and enslaved Africans. Come listen—you might even be moved to learn to play an instrument and become part of the tradition yourself. Free and open to all.
Story and Song is located at 14 30 Park Avenue. For more information visit www.storyandsongbookstore.com.
