Ongoing Programs


Please note that our monthly jams will be on hiatus for the fall season. Stay tuned--and tuned up!--for other musical opportunities coming up this fall and into the spring.

TAUNY's traditional music jams are open to folks interested in gathering with North Country neighbors to play old time fiddle tunes and songs from American folk traditions. All levels of musicians, singers, and step dancers are welcome. More information about these monthly jams is  available at this link.

Watch for campfire jams with Barb Heller and Nature Up North.


Watercolor Circle

A group of watercolorists and other artists gathers at The TAUNY Center each  Wednesday and Friday morning, bringing their own materials and projects, to paint, consult, and converse. The group is open to the public, and you are welcome to bring any kind of art or craft project you're working on. For more information, call Camilla at 315-384-4289, or email
