We had a fine evening of Open Stage performances on Friday May 17, 2013. Everything worked well. Two new easily adjustable mike stands were a big improvement. The sound was great and we even heard the world premier of the “Black Walnut Club” song by Jim Skura. A fine song that is already a big hit.
Plan for June 21st when we will feature Fiddle & Swing. They are a family ensemble from Downtown Kitchener, drawing musical inspiration from artists as diverse as Stan Rogers, Natalie MacMaster, Duke Ellington and the Grateful Dead. Anna, Greg and Jacob deGroot-Maggetti play in a wide variety of genres, including folk, fiddle, jazz, bluegrass and classical. We have seen Jacob and Greg at the club before. Anna has been on Rotary Exchange in Brazil since July 2012, and is returning to Canada in mid-June (just in time for the Black Walnut Folk Evening) – Fiddle & Swing looks forward to adding Brazilian pieces and styles to their repertoire.
