Building the Blog...

Hey, gang,

To my knowledge, there are two slow sessions around town. One is led by Colleen O'Sullivan at the monthly Albany CCE Sean O'Riada Branch meeting on the third Sunday of each month (except in Summer). Check out http://www.AlbanyCCE.com for more info on the meetings. And the other is mine, also monthly, at Old Songs Community Arts Center (http://www.OldSongs.org) on the second Wednesday evening of each month (except in July).

Colleen and I had a really nice phone conversation yesterday morning about what (and how) each of us is doing at our respective sessions. There are more and more new people coming out to play the music at both our sessions - although that makes leading the sessions a bit tricky because the attendance varies and the attendees vary as well. To try and ease preparation and maybe give everybody an idea of what we're doing across the board, we've decided to collaborate a bit on tunes for each month. That means that we'll be on hold for our February tunes for a few more days. Then I have to have Lisa check the "spots" for accuracy across a number of versions (thank you for the help, Lisa), and a few different folks record the mp3s.

In the meantime, I'm working on figuring out how and where to host the .pdfs of the sheet music and the .mp3s of the tunes.


I'll keep ya POST-ed!

Talk soon,

Hilary
