Fiddle Club, Concerts and More!
I’m delighted to have joined forces with my fiddler extraordinaire friend, Enion Pelter-Tiller to have created a fiddle club for local kids to jam and enjoy group music making here in Lyons, CO. Starting in June 2016, we want to create a space for kids to learn fun tunes, experience playing with others and feel confident in a group setting no matter what their musical background or level is. If you have a child you’d like to join in, drop me a line and we’ll get you set up.
In other news, Take Down the Door is having a great time playing out and about locally. We have a show in Lyons on June 16, and one in Longmont on July 14, 2016. Both are outdoor, picnic and family friendly shows which we really look forward to. I’m also really looking forward to joining the Beth Gadbaw Trio at the Elizabeth Irish Festival on July 16th, 2016.
My wonderful students are continuing their lessons through the summer around travel and music camps, and we are working towards recitals in the fall for friends and family.
I’m so enjoying the musical outlets of teaching and playing while I juggle my little ones and work! What a journey, and I have more respect than ever for all those Mamas out there who manage to raise happy kids, while also pursuing their own careers. What a learning curve! A musical highlight this week was being woken up at 6 am by my 1 year old who had found a harmonica in her crib (the way you do!). That’s one way of getting attention first thing in the morning with all the windows open and neighbors living really close by!
