Unique opportunity to play music in the former administrative building of the oldest chocolate factory in America. Walter Baker Artist Lofts has a permanent exhibit by the artists in residence. The common room (with temporary exhibit) with high ceilings and natural light from three tall windows is on the right-hand side of the front entrance. This is a grassroots initiative to introduce the joy of ukulele to this part of Boston. Location is visible from the Milton-T station (red line to Ashmont, then Mattanpan trolley). Free parking on streets, lot of Star Market (behind building, away from their entrance), nearby CVS, and on Eliot Street.

Prior to this free jam session is a workshop for beginners. Please RSVP on that meet-up if you’d like to join. Doors open from 6:30 pm.
