It has been really great seeing so many of you out at the many great music events that have been happening this month! And we’re keeping the good times coming with a fantastic Celtic Music Night at St Andrew lined up for tonight…
Celtic Music Night continues This Tuesday night! This week, Tuesday November 15th, 7pm, duo John Weed & Stuart Mason of Little Black Train, & Molly’s Revenge– Irish & Appalachian old-time fiddle, mandola, & song.
John Weed and Stuart Mason play traditional tunes and songs that explore the musical connection between Ireland and Appalachia. A classically trained violinist, John doesn’t let that get in the way of his fiery fiddling. Indeed, he leverages his understanding of the instrument to wrestle every last bit of tone and emotion from each piece he performs. Stuart is known for his strong, rhythmic guitar backup style using both standard and alternate tunings, and his songs are deeply rooted in the tradition. Here’s a sneak preview: http://helmintoller.com/weedmason/ The duo is also very excited about their recent cd release of “Slow and Easy, 25 Essential Irish Tunes”, which is a special tutorial cd made specifically for people interested in getting into the Irish session tradition by teaching great tunes to play with others. These cds will be available for purchase! And we will have a jam session after the concert…:)
Also, this coming Sunday November 20th is St. Andrew Day Church Service & Celebration at St. Andrew Church, where the congregation with choir and myself and Scottish dancers will honor Scotland’s patron Saint with many fantastic traditions, including the ‘Kirking o’ the Tartans (blessing the many family plaids), special music, bagpipes, and Scottish country dancing, sharing with the children, and special refreshments in the fellowship hall before and after the service. It’s a fun and friendly day open to all, so I encourage you to come and be a part of the St. Andrew community and see our lovely host Church in action; we’d all love to see you that morning! Welcome around 10am, service begins at 10:30am, with festivities following at 11:30am. Again, the Church is located at 9850 Monroe Avenue, Aptos, CA. More info: http://standrew-aptos.org/index.htm
