Hello Friends and Fans!
We've been away from public performance for a while now, but that is definitely changing! We spent some of the cooler weather working on a few new tunes and songs (not as much as we hoped, but its all good). Marshall spent a weekend at a fiddle workshop taught by Betty Vornbrock so he is working on some new tunes and enhanced bowing techniques as well.
April already started out with Marshall doing a musical program at Hunt Meadows Elementary School and with a trip down to Greenwood to accompany Jennie Wakefield teach some dance students the delights of contradancing. We arrived at the dance workshop early enough to see some instruction in African dance as well, which looked like a heck of a lot of fun.
Coming up we'll be playing for a couple private events for Upcountry Friends and Interim Hospice, then back to the Cafe at Williams Hardware for a show on April 16th. And go ahead and mark your calendars for same place to see a rare public performance of the BattleAxe Band on May 7th!
Marshall and Square Root will be celebrating early spring produce by playing at the Easley Farmer's Market on April 23rd, and Lucy will be returning to emcee at Merlefest at the end of the month.
The Jam at Jim's (oldtime edition) continues on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays each month, and there is some talk that an Irish session may be added on the alternate Thursdays. Stay tuned for more on that development! All are welcome; an informal place to play tunes.
Thanks for supporting live music! Hope to see you at a show (or a jam).
