Southwest Old Time String Band Gathering

What is it?

It’s a gathering of old time musicians (and their friends), to be held in Tucson, Arizona, on March 3-5, 2017 (Friday through Sunday). This will be the first time for this event. If it works, it could be annual thing. Expect lots of jamming, dancing, good food, and of course great weather.


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 motels 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.

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

Here’s a zoomable map.


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