2012 Berkeley Old Time Music Convention
There will also open jamming around Civic Center Park hosted by the Black Crown String Band. The Contest is the centerpiece of the Berkeley Old Time Music Convention. Most of the bands will be fiddle-banjo combos, but there are always some that push the old-time envelope: jug band, Greek band (complete with undulating belly dancer), ragtime mandolins, Irish stepdancers, Italian tarantellas –- anything goes as long as it’s unplugged.
