This week our trio (Pete, Trish & I) decided to try out our harmonies on some new ears in the charming hamlet of Glen Williams. The Copper Kettle Pub has been hosting an acoustic jam for 7 ½ years. When we arrived, the only other musician in evidence was Phil, the host of the evening, but before we had our instruments tuned and our glasses filled by Brenda several more joined us. The chance to lead a song moves around the circle and players are welcome to join in.

It is a relaxed atmosphere in a charming old building (circa 1856) just minutes away from the main street of Georgetown. We were surprised to find that there was no food served (not even pub food or snacks) so don’t arrive at this event hungry!

The acoustic jam happens twice a week (Tuesdays & Fridays) starting at 8 pm. There is also an open mic hosted by James, usually the third Saturday of the month but he recommends calling ahead to confirm (905-877-5551).
