Strummer/bassist seeks nearby acoustic partner(s) (Zionsville)

Not necessarily looking to start a "band" -- been there, done that as bassist for a few local rock acts, all of which are now either kaput or on indefinite hiatus. I'm early 50s, married with two kids. I work from home, so am fairly flexible daytimes. Would like to find a like-minded someone or two to fiddle around with on acoustic instruments in our spare time, learning folk, traditional, old jazz, country, and tin pan alley tunes, and maybe doing traditional takes on rock classics. I'm quite good on acoustic bass guitar, decent on tenor guitar, uke, baritone uke, and banjolele. Four strings are clearly my max! Not a great singer but can do some backing vocals. I have a cahon and a few other percussion doo-dads, plus some random gear including mixer and drum machine. Basically, I'm good handling rhythm, bass, and chords. You're good with leads and melodies and have at least an interest in old-time music. AND you live in or near Zionsville -- I don't want driving to become a hurdle or hassle. Would we end up playing out? If we got good enough, sure, why not. But focus on playing together first, nailing some tunes, and seeing if there's chemistry, with no other pressure. I'm no expert on old or traditional music, by the way. More like a new student of it. Playing by myself has gotten a little lonesome and unsatisfying. I think it would be more fun to explore it with others, but unfortunately all my musician friends are either too busy in their own bands or live too far away to easily get together. Please contact me through CL and tell me a bit about yourself if any of this sounds interesting. Thanks.
