Strung Together – Bluegrass & Old Time Music Campout

This year’s Strung Together Music Jam Campout is held on the coast of Searsport, Maine, September 15-17th, 2023.

Welcome, all players and listeners that appreciate old-time and bluegrass music to a weekend of playing, learning, sharing, and listening with some of the best old-time players in New England.

We invite you to join us in Searsport…and hope that you’ll help us spread the word!

The OT & Bluegrass Jam weekend begins Friday afternoon with an OT Jam and banjo workshop followed by our world famous Strung Together wood fired pizza bar and concert. The jams will take place in different areas in the park but close enough to give all participants easy access to any jam circle.
