TRUSCOTT – Last week the annual Circle Bar Ranch Music Camp concluded with the students and musicians from a wide area participating in a public jam session.
This music camp was originally held in Crowell for a few years, then moved to Goree for three years, and has been held in Truscott for the last eight years.
The evening began with a home-style chicken fried steak dinner and concluded with hours of first class live music. While the classes were on guitar and fiddle, more than 30 musicians participated in the public jam session playing guitars, bass guitar, fiddle, accordion, harmonica, and saxophone, performing classic country, rock ‘n’ roll, and blues.
It was a true jam session. One would start a song and others would join in, and it sounded as if they had been playing together for years.
The performers ranged in age from six years old to more than 70. The artists were from Crowell, Haskell, Vernon, Wichita Falls, Thalia, Abilene, Dallas, Moriarty, Madisonville, Altus, Devol, and other areas. The four talented instructors were from Plainview, Lubbock, and Dallas.
