I picked up a guitar early on in life, mostly to accompany my singing voice. Singing was my first love. As the years went by, guitar was dropped but I continued to sing. With a church choir, a jazz group, a barbershop group, community theater. Twenty years went by before I picked up a guitar again.
Jim and I were comparing notes this morning, during rehearsal. He has a different story. He told me that while singing was his first love, he picked up guitar later in life. Our stories are different, as are your stories, no doubt. Some of you left your instruments for an extended hiatus, and some of you stayed.
This is what I love the most about our monthly song circle - always the second Friday of the month~! We bring our voices and our instruments and we make a joyful noise for each other. Whether we're left behinders or stick with its, our different stories blend into an evening that lifts me up every time.
Our 2014 open mic schedule affords us a rare opportunity to meet new people. The November open mic will be on Saturday, November 1. This will work out nicely for those of you who have a scheduling conflict with the traditional 2nd Saturday of the month. For those of you who can't plan a weekend of music, we have broken up the folk circle/open mic weekend in November!
The November folk circle will still take place on the 2nd Friday of November.
We look forward to seeing you this Friday, August 8 - at 8PM for our monthly folk circle.
