March 1 Sunday Fiddling at the Ely Stage Stop

 March 1 Sunday Fiddling at the Ely Stage Stop

KELSEYVILLE, Calif. – The Ely Stage Stop & Country Museum welcomes back the Old Time Fiddlers Association for the monthly First Sunday Fiddlers’ Jam on Sunday, March 1.

Typically musicians from Lake, Sonoma and Mendocino counties descend upon the stage stop for a round robin style jam session.

Musicians of all ages will meet in the Ely barn from noon through 2 p.m. to perform their wonderful Americana music.

The fun begins at the museum at 11 a.m. Come and enjoy the newest display in the main house celebrating the Lake County Dairy Industry.

Collections of milk bottles and butter churns are featured with old photos from bygone days at the dairies.  

There will be the regular monthly raffle near the end of the jam and more chances to purchase raffle tickets for the “Barns, Birds and Quilts” raffle that will celebrate a winner later in the year. Those items will be on display.

This is a free, family friendly event for all to enjoy, so bring young and old alike.  Enjoy the music with hot beverages and tasty treats. Bring your own wine and sip it in Ely Stage Stop wine glasses that will be available for purchase.

Donations benefit both the Ely Stage Stop, helping to fund a blacksmith shop on which volunteers are about to start work, and the Old Time Fiddlers Association District 10, who uses it to partially fund their scholarship programs.

Home to the Lake County Historical Society, the stage stop is located at 9921 State Highway 281 (Soda Bay Road) in Kelseyville, near Clearlake Riviera, just north of Highway 29-Kit's Corner.

Current hours of operation are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. each Saturday and Sunday. Fiddlers’ Jams occur the first Sunday of every month from noon until 2 p.m.
