Start the holidays with sounds of joy! The Old Time Fiddlers Association continues their monthly First Sunday Fiddlers’ Jam sessions at the Ely Stage Stop and Country Museum. On Sunday, December 7th, they’ll be performing beautiful Americana music with a possible sprinkling of holiday cheer to get you in the spirit! Come ready to clap your hands and tap your toes. We’ll even make room for those who want to get up and dance! This is a free, family friendly event for all to enjoy, young and old alike.
The fun begins at the museum at 11:00 a.m. with the Fiddlers playing in the barn from 12 noon through 2 p.m. Come early to enjoy all of the latest museum acquisitions and displays. Take this last opportunity to buy tickets for the “barn replica” birdhouse that will be raffled off during the fiddling that day. Enjoy the music with beverages and tasty treats provided by the docents. Bring your own wine and sip it in Ely Stage Stop wine glasses that are available for purchase.
Attendees frequently make donations and the money collected is split between Ely, to help fund a blacksmith shop that volunteers will soon be building, and the Fiddlers Association, who uses it to partially fund their scholarship programs.
The stage stop, operated by the Lake County Historical Society, is located at 9921 Soda Bay Road (Hwy 281) in Kelseyville. Current hours of operation are 11:00 a.m. to 03:00 p.m. each Saturday and Sunday. Fiddlers’ Jams occur the first Sunday of every month.
