This is for anyone who's interested in playing contemporary folk/alt country -- Eddie Vedder, Alison Krauss, Josh Ritter, Gillian Welch, The Avett Brothers. Patty Griffin. I've recently moved here from Canada where I regularly met with friends to play guitars and sing.
The intention is to make music and enjoy.
We will meet at my place -- I have a big, open kitchen that is perfect for music. We would usually meet on Sundays but I'm free at other times as well.
We do mostly cover songs and I provide the music sheets. Ideally, I would send out a play list so that everyone is prepared.I have hundreds of songs but am open to your suggestions :)
The group ranges in ability and age, but we play at an intermediate level or higher. If you love music and can play or sing at this level, this is for you!
To hear the level, here are a few links:
and solo performances:
As you can see, nothing too polished!
I like many artists, including: Josh Ritter, Alison Krauss, Rosanne Cash, Patty Griffin, The Avett Brothers, Brett Demen, Eddie Vedder, Gillian Welch, Sharon Van Etten, Kathleen Edwards, Steve Earle, John Hiatt, Lyle Lovett, Leadbelly, Pablo Nutini, The Corrs, Emmylou Harris, John Prine, Cat Power, The Be Good Tanyas, The Decemberists, The Secret Sisters, The Milk Carton Kids, the Punch Brothers, Conor Oberst, Wilco, Lucinda Williams, Bahamas, You and Me, Laura Marling.... And many many more....
Hope to see you soon!
