Our performance schedule can be found on this post.
Our rehearsal schedule includes 5pm rehearsals at Gideon Welles pub (4500 N. Lincoln) the next 3 Sundays: 5/31, 6/7 and 6/14. We’ll be in the back room. Last Sunday we worked on Brudpolkka efter Edward Öst, Snouts and Ears of America, Polonæse Svøbsk, Walk Old Shoe, and Blackthorn Stick. On the schedule for this Sunday is El Viento, Storm and a couple others.
Y’all are invited to come learn a few tunes and play with us. Here are some aids to help you learn the tunes:
1. A Tune list, with links to downloadble recordings (also a downloadable pdf)
2. A Tunebook in standard music notation
3. ABC notation for the tunes (plus hints how to use ABCs)
And don’t forget. This Sunday (5/31) is also Bluegrass Night at Fiddle Club of the World, with a concert and workshop/jam led by Colby Maddox and Sunnyside Up. Meetings starts at 7pm at Seman Violins in Skokie (4447 W. Oakton). Admission is $15.
