We could make beautiful music together...
Looking for a way to start a band, join a band, or just
play with some like-minded musicians? Got an instrument you want
to buy, sell, or trade? Try posting a free ad here. (acoustic musicians
and SFS members from Inland NW only, please) If you're just interested
in playing at a jam, first check out the SFS jam page.
Jams are good ways to meet other similar musicians, but mostly they have
to settle on common ground, so a lot of your best music may never get played.
This might be a good place to connect with your favorite musical styles,
or to float ideas for great musical/folk dance events in the Inland Northwest
(greater Spokane area). Just email the webmaster (firstname.lastname@example.org)
with your contact information and whatever text you wish to include.
You may want to include what instruments you play, what general area you
live in, how long you've been playing, favorite musicians or styles, etc.
Here are some sample categories and entries, but other folk music categories
are welcomed. If you are leary of stating your identity to the world,
say so in your email and a contact nickname can be used. We reserve
the right to refuse any ads deemed unsuitable.

|Rabbit for yarn making
||June 2006. I have a white female angora rabbit (for spinning
yarn), 2 years old. but I've discovered I'm allergic to rabbits.
So if anyone out there is a spinner and would like her, she is free. but
please do your research on what it takes to raise one of these rabbits
before accepting responsibility. I want to go to a good home.

Kevlar core cord. The drum is carved from a single

cracking. The drum is 24” high. This lead drum has
wonderful sound and Base/ Tone/ Slap contrast. I will
