The Pretty Shaky String Band

The Pretty Shaky String Band is an East Lansing institution. Shakies have been meeting each Wednesday night for over twenty five years. Many of Michigan's finest folk musicians are Shaky alumni. Primarily an old time folk music jam, the Shakies also perform at various farmer's markets and events in the area.

The Shakies are a friendly and laid back group. Musicians of all levels are welcome. A round robin format is followed, so everyone gets a chance to pick tunes. Originally strictly an old-timey session, we also embrace some Celtic and French-Canadian influence. If you are looking for an old time music jam in Mid-Michigan, players and listeners are always welcome!

If you'd like to join us but don't know how to play an instrument, MSU's Community Music School offers lessons and classes geared toward adult beginners. Click here for more details, or email us.

Wednesdays, 7:30 pm (or so) until everybody goes home (usually between 10 and 11 pm)
Next date: Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017
