Unique photos of Grace, the Fiddle & friends, on location in gardens, parks & unlikely places. Capturing the 'essence' of the different styles of music & escapades of a Fiddle.
Created into greeting cards, posters, block & canvas prints & 2013 Calendar. Great gifts for musicians, lovers of nature & those with Celtic connections.
Global Voices, a four-part choir of about 30 members, needs more tenors and basses to fill the gaps left by some recent departures. We meet on a Wednesday evening in Opawa, and our repertoire is a capella world song. You can see and hear more on our website, www.globalvoices.org.nz, and phone Jenny 382 4982 or John 021 1157344 to see about coming along to try us out.
I'd like to get more live music at my regular monthly contra dances, and hope to attract your interest. In the USA where contra dancing is thriving, it is almost always done to live music. There are a wide range of musical styles that suit.
Please let me know if you are interested and I can keep in contact.
Would you like to challenge yourself a bit? Need to keep polished, so you don't get stage fright in front of an audience? No prior musical knowledge required, but a love of Folk and ability to share your appreciation of the fine gift the artists have would be helpful.
Please talk to Judi Smitheren for more details.
Dances start March 6. 7:30 to 10:30 pm at the Addington School Hall. No Partners Needed! All Dances Taught! Easy and Lots of Fun! First timers welcome! Please bring a supper plate to share. Only $5. Musicians play for one dance and get in free! Call a dance, get in free!
