Tribes Hill Annual Meeting and Hootenanny Saturday June 14

from 1:00pm until the wee hours of the morning.
We'll begin the event with an open mic. Potluck dinner will be followed by elections for new board members. The evening will continue with a ceremony to honor WFUV radio personality John Platt with a lifetime Tribes Hill membership. Then we will enjoy performances by Joe Crookston and Glass of Water. We will finish the evening around the fire for a song circle. The focus of this event is community, celebration, great music and delicious food.

Open mic sign up begins at 12pm. Performances are from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. All members are invited to participate.

We ask that everyone attending bring a food contribution to share. Please let us know what dish you will be bringing by signing up on our bulletin board page. We will provide breakfast for volunteers and for dinner burgers vegetarian and non-vegetarian, hot dogs, rolls condiments, water and lemonade. BYOB

Sustainability is fun! In an effort to Reduce Reuse and Recycle we ask that everyone bring their own something to drink from. If you like you can join our cup swap! Bring a mug or cup to donate. The wackier and weirder the better! Purchase someone else's mug for $2 to use and keep. A grand prize of significant value will be given for the best/craziest mug donated to the person who purchased that cup --- so your selection could be very valuable.

We will be holding elections for new board members after dinner. This is your opportunity to volunteer to fill open seats on the Board and to vote for board members of your choice.

John Platt is Director of Communications and Special Projects for WFUV and on the air as host of Sunday Breakfast. He has been a longtime supporter of independent musicians. We are proud to honor him in person with a lifetime membership.

After the meeting we will enjoy a performance by Joe Crookston, a multi instrumentalist who accompanies himself on guitar, banjo, accordion, fiddle and piano. Falcon Ridge Folk Festival named him one of the Top 3 "Most Wanted" Emerging Artists.

Glass of Water will open for Joe Crookston.
Emily Steele Hurst and Sophia Smith-Savedoff sing a range of tradition-inspired songs from New England, Appalachia and the British Isles.
