We will meet as usual on Tuesdays at 7:45 PM at my place.
Starting in March, the meetings will be limited to people who want to perform with us, but until then they will be open to people who want to drop in.
We have been scheduled to lead a workshop at NEFFA (New England Folk Festival of the Arts) on the music of Thomas Ravenscroft. The description says:
Thomas Ravenscroft was one of the first people to collect and publish English Folk Music, including rounds and ballads. This workshop will be a chance for participants to sing (or play) some of this music.
We're tentatively scheduled for Middle School Rm. 108 on Saturday April 16th, 9:00pm to 9:50pm.
What this means is that between now and April 16 we need to put together a booklet of Ravenscroft tunes, with 50 minutes of easy stuff and maybe half an hour of harder stuff. We'll also need several people to commit to coming and helping pass out booklets and set up sections and sit next to people who might be insecure without someone who knows the music to sit next to.
One implication of this work is that the Walk for Hunger program will probably have lots of Ravenscroft on it. This means we can have the rehearsals in March and the beginning of April open to people who want to play with us at either or both of NEFFA and the Walk for Hunger.
