There Will Be Tunes Tonight

Hey Y'all! I'm sick but David will lead the session tonight starting at 7:30 p.m. Classes at Old Songs have started, so we will be upstairs once Paul Draper's banjo class has completed.

We will have a discussion about November's session via email soon, because our next date is the night before Thanksgiving.

Halfway to St. Patrick's Day!

The weekend was full of fabulous music...

Heyya, Music Buddies! 

So...there was a lot going on this weekend, huh? Michael Eck told Eric that he did a set at Fresh Grass, played Irish 2000 and did two private gigs this weekend. I can't even begin to imagine how exhausted he is today!

I hope your last weekend of summer (half way to St. Patrick's Day too by the way) was a total blast! We...worked. Yup! That's the life. We did have a few tunes ourselves, but nothing major.

Just a quick check-in here to remind you all that we'll be having our September Old Songs Slow Session this Wednesday, Sept. 19 at 7:30 p.m. Come on out and play a few tunes. If you haven't joined the mailchimp email list, you can sign up HERE. I send out the spots (sheet music) via my email newsletter, so do sign up!

And see ya Wednesday!

End of Summer, No End to the Tunes...

Remember When Summer Seemed Endless?

Just a few short months ago, summer seemed endless, full of potential and limitless fun. And now, in the waning days of August we can see Autumn just around the corner and the return of the school year in sight. Even though I haven't been in school for, well, decades, I still look forward to the structure that September brings.

Speaking of structure, the Irish Slow Session at Old Songs has really solidified into a nice group of folks working on tunes. Last Wednesday, August 15, 2018, we ended up our summer slow session series with a really lovely round robin.

To get the tunes, sign up for my email list in the pop-up box on this page (I use MailChimp). You might have to close and re-open the blog to see the pop-up box. If you sign up in the sidebar, you'll get this blog in your email inbox, but not the email reminders. On the email reminder list, you'll get reminders and follow-ups and announcements about Irish culture related events and activities you might be interested in.

Anyway, get ye to the MailChimp subscription to get the August tunes and tune-list! See you there...
