Tunes of the Times planned at Sycamore Shoals Feb. 10

Published 9:24 am Friday, February 2, 2024

Life on the 18th century frontier could be harsh and unpredictable. Many early settlers turned to music as a source of joy and entertainment.
On February 10 from 2 to 3 p.m. the community will get a glimpse of the musical heritage of the colonial frontier with Sycamore Shoals State Park museum curator Chad Bogart. In the “Gathering Place” of the park visitor center, Bogart will present a glimpse of how music was a part of the everyday lives of colonial Americans and how the melting pot of early America influenced the songs and tunes we still enjoy today.
Tickets are $6. Children age five and under will be admitted free.
An Old-Time Music Jam will be held at the park Sunday, Feb. 25, from 1:30 to 4 p.m. in the park visitor center.
Old-time musicians of all levels are invited. Don’t play an instrument, come anyway and enjoy the music.
