Old-Time Music Gathering


Scottish Rite Center (map) Southwest
Sat., Jan. 15, 1 p.m. 2011 All Ages


If you have even the slightest inclination toward old-time music—that revival of the acoustic-based bluegrass, blues, folk, country, and gospel that more or less became the groundwork for almost every kind of American song-based music to come since—then the Scottish Rite Center is where you're going to want to spend your weekend. Throughout the building's three floors and five different performance spaces, visiting and local pluckers, pickers, fiddlers, and grinners will perform, workshop, and jam. Since $15 ($10 in advance) gets you in the door each day, there's definite bang-for-your-buck factor, and if you're the kind of person who just can't get enough square dancing, you'll probably spend more minutes this weekend promenading than the rest of the winter combined. The Portland Old-Time Music Gathering stretches beyond the weekend to different venues around town; visit for the full schedule. NED LANNAMANN
