Welcome to Appalachian Music of Southwestern Pennsylvania, a website that connects you to live performances and instruction in traditional Old Time fiddling and stringband music, and a resource center for Old Time music news and information.
If you're looking for entertainment to fit a traditional rural American setting, nothing is more charming and captivating than the sounds of an Old Time fiddler. Add a banjo for melodic accompaniment and a guitar for rhythm and you've got a band for all occasions. You may hire our musicians for everything from birthday parties and weddings to festivals and square dances.
Learn to play fiddle, banjo, guitar or mandolin in the Old Time style. Just like in the old days, tunes are taught by ear. Playing music is as engaging as any interactive computer game on the market, and more fun than you can imagine.
The New Old Times brings you old news and interesting features about Old Time music and Appalachian folk culture. Visit this site to find out where you can go to hear, play, or dance to Old Time music in Pittsburgh, and the Southwestern Pennsylvania region.
