Cold frosty days have returned! I
was so grateful to have the last two weeks of November
off from work. The first of those I focused on rehearsing
for my gig with the All-State Treble Choir, which went
pretty well. After that was Thanksgiving week, and visiting
with daughter Amanda who is back from Viriginia for six
So glad that John Walsh is in town!
We had a lovely session at Celtic Treasures last night,
for their Fall open house pre-sale event. John will join
us for a couple more sessions at McGinley's, and his banjo
playing will sure make it feel lik the "good old days."
Had a wonderful visit with some friends
from Conn. recently; they traveled all the way to Alaska
in a 1972 camper van, and brought with them an interesting
collection of accordions/concertinas. (See
photo of the month).
I am privileged to be a part of some interesting gigs in
the next couple months: Samhain (Celtic Community of Alaska),
The Gerard McDonnell Memorial Ceili (Irish Club of Alaska),
and the All-state Choir (high school age, performing at West
High in November).
