“Fiddle Away” first Sunday at Ely Stage Stop

Come join the ever popular First Sunday Fiddlers’ Jam at the Ely Stage Stop on June 5. The fun begins at the museum at 11:00 a.m. with the Fiddlers playing in the barn from 12 noon through 2 p.m. The Ely Stage Stop has proven to be the perfect venue to foster community interest and appreciation for the California Old Time Fiddlers’ Association’s music. Donations will benefit the Ely Stage Stop and the Old Time Fiddlers Association.

Come early and check out the latest museum acquisitions and displays. Take a stroll down the “barn trail” connecting the main house to the barn. Check out the new permanent outdoor stage that will be used to enhance future events on the property.

This free, family friendly event can be enjoyed by all, young and old alike.  Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on one of the beautiful picnic tables.  Enjoy the music with beverages and tasty treats provided by the docents.  Bring your own wine and sip it in Ely Stage Stop wine glasses that are available for purchase. Come ready to clap your hands, tap your toes, and get up and dance!
