September 2022 meeting

With as hot as it’s been, the turn-out for our Sept. 6th meeting wasn’t too bad! Welcome to Linda Norby who added some more class to David’s already class act. Our friend Ron Labrecque also joined us, always good to see one of the library’s stalwarts. We also had a guest that stayed by the door and only stayed for a couple tunes. He looked like a Tim to us, so we’ll call him Tim until we know better. Everyone is welcome to join us, whether they play or not.

Linda and David teamed up for some great harmonies. Remy SANG one tonight! to open the evening. I joined him for Danny O’Keefe’s “Good Time Charlie” that was presentable. Rick and Ed joined forces for Old Crow Medicine Show’s “Wagon Wheel”. Rick also brought us a group song, “Jackson”, by Cash and Carter. T’was a most pleasant evening in the library’s Cottonwood Room.

Rick’s twin brother did the inlay work on his Brian Moore bass

Pierre Bensusan will be giving a performance and workshop on Sept. 20th in the library’s Cottonwood Room.

Pierre works in DADGAD tuning, and will be giving a workshop on it starting 10:30 in the Cottonwood Room. Bring a guitar if you like. The concert will begin at 7pm in the same location.
