Old Songs Slow Session Wed., November 15, 2017

Hey music buddies,

Quick reminder that this Wednesday is our Old Songs November Slow Session. We will be upstairs because George Wilson is giving his fiddle classes downstairs.

I hope more folks will join us this month! There will be a learn-by-ear tune to start and then we'll do Round Robin, so get started thinking of the tune you'd like to play.

A couple of little pieces of news:

1. Songs of George Ward - Until the Black Flies Go at Old Songs on Saturday, November 18 at 7:30 PM. Featuring Dave Ruch, John Roberts, George Ward, and special guests.
Facebook Event:
Old Songs is celebrating our dear friend (and one of my musical heroes) George Ward in a star-studded retrospective of his music. We have all enjoyed his songs and learned so much about music and history from him. Let me encourage you to show your respect to a great man and a great musician. Get your tickets today!

2. Copley Street House Concert in Chatham, NY on Friday, November 24 at 8 PM. 
Facebook Event:
Joey Abarta (uillean pipes) and Nathan Gourley (fiddle) are Copley Street, and they'll be performing a house concert at Neal Warshaw's home in Chatham, NY. It's on Woodbridge Avenue in Chatham, and you can make your reservation by emailing Neal at Reservations Required, space is limited. $20 at the door. CDs will be available for purchase.
