New Germany State Park To Feature Old-Time Jams

Grantsville, Md. (April 23, 2012) –  Beginning in May, New Germany State Park will be hosting Old-Time Jams, providing an opportunity for musicians and spectators of all ages to share and enjoy traditional folk, bluegrass and other celebrated Appalachian music.

• May 4 and 18
• June 1 and 16
• July 6 and 20
