Our monthly meetings are focused on learning and playing
these wonderful instruments. We strive to learn &develop new tunes and songs that members bring and then "jam"
at the end of the night to reinforce the learning and to develop our playing skills with others. If you're in the Pocono
region come join us! BEGINNERS are especially welcome!!! (Other acoustic
instruments are certainly welcome too!)
