Southwest Old Time String Band Gathering

March 1-3, 2019
That's Friday - Sunday BUT!!!!!

You may arrive Thursday February 28 after noon to make it a 4 day weekend!

Forms will be updated shortly and registration should open September 15 or thereabouts.

What is it?

It’s a gathering of old time musicians (and their friends and families), to be held in Tucson, Arizona, February 28 - March 3, 2019 (Thursday through Sunday). Yes, it officially "starts" on the last day in February but we didn't want to say "February" in the heading! This will be the third year for this event. Last year was another a great weekend of music thanks to all of you. It looks like it will be an annual event. Expect lots of jamming, dancing, good food, and of course great weather.

Location

The gathering site is a 16-acre Girl Scout camp. We’ve rented it for a weekend in March when the Girl Scouts are gone. The location includes lots of great tent camping areas, room for RVs, and even a bunk house. For those who prefer less “roughing it,” several motelsand RV parks are located nearby.

It also has modern restrooms, showers, a large outdoor kitchen and eating area, barbecue grills, shady ramadas, fire pits, and even a fish pond.

This site will comfortably support about 150-200 folks with about 100 camping. The people there have been great to us so until we reach our limit we plan to stay at this site.

The address is:
3101 N. Sabino Canyon Rd.
Tucson, AZ 85715

Here’s a zoomable map.

Events

The emphasis is on group jamming, but three events are tentatively scheduled:
