GUEST,Carol's Friend Don Old Time music in DC? (10) RE: Old Time music in DC? 06 Apr 01

Next Friday, 4/13/01, at 8 PM there's an Open Band at Glen Echo Park, where you can meet about thirty of the best trad musicians in the area, playing for one of the larger contra dances in the area. Many of them have their own bands. Fiddlers to know: Steve Hickman, Laura Lengnick, Sharon Hall, Alexander Mitchell, Joe Herrman, Andrea Hoag, Elke Baker, Richie Schuman and ten others I forgot (well you KNEW how banjo players are... too much plucking without a helmet etc.) Commit this list to memory, and eat it if captured.

If you're any good, they know their own, and at some point you might get invited down to the first of four rows of musicians. (After several years, I'm at the second row)

The buses do go to Glen Echo (up MacArthur Blvd, west of Georgetown. At that point, you're on your own. Don't embarass me!
