Squirrel Jam has been playing bluegrass and old-time American music since 2011. Over the years, instruments have included pennywhistle, hammer dulcimer, and as many as 5 banjos! Squirrel Jam currently features a standard bluegrass lineup, with mandolin, fiddle, banjo, guitar, Dobro, and bass. They burst out of their living rooms in time to play at the Countryside Farmers' Market two years ago. We're happy to be back again this year.
