Janie Oldtime Musical Gatherings: What Were They Called? (32) RE: Oldtime Musical Gatherings: What Were They Called? 26 Jun 17

My grandparents, from eastern Kentucky, just called it visiting with neighbors and family. If dance was involved, that usually happened after community work parties such as corn huskings and bean stringings, or house or barn raisings.

In his youth, my grandfather was a much sought after banjo and fiddle player for those events.

There would also be hymn singings, usually held at quarterly "Association" meetings among the many different Old Regular and United Baptist associations in and around the Tri-state area of WV, KY and Ohio.
