Love to sing . . . want to sing harmony. I have been playing guitar for over 40 years, but mostly for my own amusement.
Good night with songs, instruments, and wonderful people. Kim kept us moving right along, with an impeccable memory of the order of song leaders. Miriam (?), fiddle player, sat next to Jeanne, — was this your first time here, or have I (we) missed you? Played rousing fiddle (as did Jeanne, Nancy, and the woman in the back over there on one tune–fantastic!), led two songs: "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels"; and the Patsy Kline song. Great voice on both of those, and a considerate leader. What a joyous contribution in spirit and song! And yeah! yeah for the return of Phil. Last slow jam I attended Phil wasn't there, and there were NO mandolin players! Tonight Phil was back, playing up a storm, and he brought 10 more mandolin players out just to hear him. Thank you all!
