Friday, Sept. 15 Irene Hungerford and Emily Broderick held a Fiddlers Jam Session.
They started at 6:30 with two fiddles and a mandolin.
Next came a bag of recorders: from soparino that sounded like a penny whistle to tenor..beautiful on the English harmonies.And then came a third fiddle and guitar.On the table are copies of dance tunes from jigs to quick steps to English country dances for new comers to join in. Friends and neighbors enjoyed listening.
We were so happy to have some September Friends with us.
Back lit by the door….
Special: Mary Margaret and Rodger Tracy visit Pastor Wright.
For some of us, it’s all about parking one more car.
There were plenty of customers.
We tried to keep everyone happy.
