Following in the tradition of Olympia’s Applejam Folk Center, the Oldtime Medicine Show is a family-oriented concert series dedicated to bringing traditional, acoustic music to the South Sound area. Created in 1992 as a part of a 20th anniversary celebration for Snake Oil, the Oldtime Medicine produces concerts in a smoke and alcohol-free atmosphere once-a-month during the school year. Come and enjoy the variety of an open-mike, the old-time/bluegrass music of Snake Oil, and a wide range of guest bands - all in a friendly, down-home setting with delicious, grange-made refreshments. The programs begin at 8 pm with an open mike (the first three acts to sign in at the door), followed by a short intermission, then Snake Oil plays three numbers and introduces the main act for a half hour set. Another short intermission is followed by Snake Oil and the main act, bringing the show to a close before 11 pm. It all happens at the Prosperity Grange.
