October 2022 meeting

No confirmation of damaged digit, but look at all those lovely chiclets!

This month’s report brought to you by Steve Gilmore and Rick Memmel, with pictures by Rich Ryan, Rick Memmel, and Remy Abeyta.

Remy’s gone digital; it says so right on his guitar strap.

We met at the First United Methodist Church, and had a good group. Daniel Geary (lonetreeantiques@ad.com), joined us for the evening. He came up from Eaton, CO on invitation from our chief cook and bottle washer, Rich Ryan.

Rich’s lyrics must be on a teleprompter.

Both Remy and Russ sang a couple for us, always a treat. Ed played an original, along with a couple interesting tunes. Steve had a finger in a splint, but it didn’t seem to slow him down too much. There was some disagreement on exactly which hand suffered the injury; Steve claiming left while Rick thought it was the right hand. Without video evidence, I’m not sure either one of them is correct…

Rick brought a guitar and the group song tonight

Steve reminded members of the concert to be held at the Laramie County Public Library on Friday, October 14, 2022 at 7:00 PM. Featured artists are John and Julie Pennell. John is a well known songwriter from Nashville, having written songs for Alison Kraus, Alan Jackson and Eva Cassidy. On Saturday, October 15, John and Julie will present a workshop at the library starting at 10:30 AM.
