The October meeting came up fast on the first. A baker’s dozen met in one of the lovely meeting rooms on the Plains Hotel mezzanine.
Welcome to Skye Krahenbuhl and her highly decorated combat veteran (notice the Purple Bout), The Guitar. She just changed strings from clear to black and white to better match the decor of her six string. This girl can sing! and we all hope she’ll be joining us again soon.
Before the meeting, Skye was across the street at The Paramount, and was followed over by this Nashville resident, Effron White.
Effron happened to be passing through town and decided to check us out. Effron played us a couple of his well crafted, engaging, original tunes. Let’s hope the weather held for him while he made his way to his next gig in Ogden. Happy trails, troubadour! And thanks for the guitar case sticker.
Steve gave us the skinny on the One World Prairie Music and Pie Flinging Contest , held at the library the end of September. Attendance was up and the competition was fierce. Our very own Mike Clark took 4th place in the Acoustic category, winning himself some season tickets for the Cheyenne Concert Association’s upcoming season.
When Mike found out Tommy Emmanuel is slated for one of the shows, he was like a kid in a candy store. If memory serves, meeting Tommy is what started Mike playing in the first place. By the way, season tickets are only $60 for 4 shows; any ONE of the performances of the talented acts they have booked for this year is worth that alone!
