French Music Jam
by Gary Breitbard

French country dance music is bouncy, delightful and fairly easy to play. The traditional instruments are bagpipes, hurdy gurdy, accordion, fiddle and rhythm, although we welcome all instruments to our jams. The tunes represent a variety of dances including waltzes, shottishes, mazurkas, polkas, and especially bourrees. Everyone is welcome at the workshop, either to play, listen, tap your feet, or even dance. More information is available at French Country Dancing.
