December 2013 Meeting Report

Thanks for all who made our December meeting, we had a very nice turnout, 9 in all. Welcome to our two new players as well as all  those who keep the group going. It was a real group effort with Colleen, Clay and Vic contributing holiday tunes and Clay teaching us Good King W. We had a mix of religious and secular music and everyone did great with picking up the tunes so fast. It really does make an difference when the tunes are so familiar. About 4 of us lasted until 4:30 just playing and talking.. Hope you get to play a few tunes for yourself and your family over the holiday. Have a relaxing and fun time. See you all in the New Year.

December 2013 Meeting Announcement

The December Bellingham Dulcimer Club meeting is Saturday afternoon December 14, 2013 at the Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship at 1207 Elsworth St. between H and I Streets in the lettered streets section of Bellingham. We will start at 1:30 and end at 3:30 with some extra time for snacks at the end of our playing time so we can chat a bit before heading out.  This month we will forgo our regular circle and concentrate on holiday music so bring along a tune that you like to play and enough copies for group, (6-10) or just come and join in some familiar tunes.

Hope to see you at Heidi and Bob's concert on Tuesday night Dec. 3rd.

November 2013 Meeting Report

It was an interesting meeting to say the least. First,  it happened that there was a meditation session at the same time so we moved to a classroom in back which turned out to be a good space for us , smaller and acoustically better. Secondly we had a laugh about the time change, a week late! The six of us, plus a couple from B.C. just sitting in to listen, continued to practice "Spanish Fandango" , A Soalin, River, Acres of Clams" etc.. The new song was "Crooked Ridge " and everyone seemed to like and picked up rather quickly. 

We encourage all dulcimer players to come by and join us for the month whether you are experienced or just beginning. Also, if you would like to try the instrument let us know so we can bring extra instruments for you.

Let me know if you are interested in presenting a new song for December, otherwise just bring some Holiday tunes you would like to play and we will forgo the usual practice and celebrate the winter solstice.
