Thread Name: Oldtime Musical Gatherings: What Were They Called?
Subject: RE: Oldtime Musical Gatherings: What Were They Called?
In southwestern NC (100 miles west of Asheville), I've heard folks call a musical gathering a "pick" or a "pickin' party."
Dear Husband showed up at one when he was first in that area, took out his guitar, proceeded to play finger-style. One of the old timers remarked, "No pick? What are you, a Communist?"
DH *thinks* he was joking...
