Shout out from the Music Director
Well October and November so far have been very exciting musical
months. First the wonderful club campout. Lot’s of song and friendly fellowship. Even if it got a little damp Saturday
night …or was it Sunday morning? We had a great time and a lot of fun.
Next off to the Old Mill Fest in Kennard Texas. Just about 7-8 mile east of Crockett Texas in the Piney Woods. Put on
by Lloyd Wright (Son of Jerry and Margaret Wright). This is turning in to quite a festival. Lots of jamming …great
concerts and a chance to see some friends old and new. Even was able to make a few now ones.
Again was a little damp there for a day. But turned out to be a lot of fun. Ask anyone who went.
Just got back from Armand’s Bayou Historic Farm for a play. Great group of players and again just plain fun. Nothing
like sitting on a porch and playing songs for hours on end.
If you have not gone to a festival,
a jam or a play. Go! You will find out how rewarding they can be. You can learn and have fun at the same time at any of these
events. In fact you will probably come away with more than you every thought you could learn. Develop some close bonds with
a few friends and have a great time.
Lot’s more plays coming up. Especially this coming Christmas
Season. Time to get out those old Christmas carols again and start practicing. Bring some to the next meeting and let play
a few! You can get the clubs Christmas music by downloading it from the club website www.houstondulcimer.com.
