People often ask me why I play Old Time American music when I'm Welsh and live in Yorkshire, England.
We-e-ell the reason I love it is the groove you get in a good session, where the players all know each other and are totally in agreement about the sound they want to make. When they hit the GROOVE it's magic. Nobody wants to stop the tune and it just keeps going ..... none of the "twice through the tune then switch to the next one" stuff you tend to get in British folk tune sessions. Have a listen to Emory Bailey's Tune. This is from a session at an Old Time festival in the USA in the early 90s, and the participants are all still getting to sessions and playing like that.

What do you think?

That's sort of the essence of good, OT jamming. Used to see it a lot a festivals like Brandywine. I'm not as sure of it at Clifftop, where the contest focus may limit the groove-inducing freedom of extended jamming. The Horseflies are the band that best gets it onto CD, IMHO.

Fretless, re: Clifftop

Consider going to the "pre-festival" at Clifftop. Not speaking from personal experience, but my sister Annie has been going to Clifftop for years for the jams. (She's a fiddler.) She goes for the 4-5 days before the festival officially begins, and usually moves on the day the festival opens.

I try and get to Clifftop on the previous Friday, so I'm there for 9 nights. If you get there that early you get a LOT of jamming done with some great people who's friends haven't turned up yet! I stay for the contests because I really enjoy them. I take a lot of pictures and do some recording, and take part in the band contest.

The old time groove is close to a group trance. When it's happening, there's nothing like it.
