Spokane Folklore Society's Free Want ads
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 (webmaster@spokanefolklore.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.

Disclaimer:  Spokane Folklore Society will not be held responsible for the accuracy of the ads on this site. Let the responder beware...
Ads from this date on will be posted with the newest on top.
Musician Available
(posted Sept. 2007)
Hi. My name is Ike Parrish and I'm interested in either joining or starting a Sam Bush, Asleep at the Wheel type hot bluegrass/swing band.  I have 30 yrs. stage experience and play both electric and acoustic guitar, some mandolin and banjo, slide guitar and vocals. 
I play a lot of flatpick stuff, and also do blues and jazz.  I live in C'dA and can be reached at 208-765-3390 or parrishtbb@aol.com
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.

Ivory Coast Djembe Drum With Case

This hand carved djembe drum has a 13” diameter head
made of African goatskin. The head is secured with
Kevlar core cord. The drum is carved from a single
piece of wood by Ivory Coast traditional carvers and
has been rubbed with an oil finish to protect against
cracking. The drum is 24” high. This lead drum has
wonderful sound and Base/ Tone/ Slap contrast.  I will
include an informational song book.

I’m asking only $330.00.  So if you are in the market
for a djembe…this is a great deal.  Cash only please.
