Howdy mudcatters-

Round the House is escaping the searing June heat in Arizona for some greener venues to the east. We'll be playing Irish and contra dance music at pubs, concerts, contra dances and an Irish festival, all happening between June 12-21. We're also teaching a workshop for both new and established bands called Bandology 101.


We'd love to meet any of you along the way- and we have scheduled in time for a few sessions this year.


You're all invited to stop by and introduce yourself at any of the stops on our June tour. We're starting in Portsmouth, NH on June 12, and heading south through the next ten days through New Haven, CT, York, Harrisburg, Philadelphia and Glen Rock PA, and Glen Echo & Baltimore Maryland.   All the details are on our website calendar:

We really hope to meet up with some other mudcatters, and maybe play a tune or two.

Sharon

One of our stops that might be of interest to Mudcatters, or your musical friends is our Bandology 101 workshop. We are giving it on Friday, June 12 at 5:30 pm at the Acoustic Outfitters Music Shop, 72 Portsmouth Ave. in Stratham, NH. This is sort of out growth of lessons learned over our 11 years as a contra dance and Irish performance band.

The workshop has a practical orientation and is geared for new and established bands. It covers the basics skills needed to be a successful band, with emphasis on the specific interests of the participants including such things as creating a distinctive band sound/identity, arranging songs and tune sets, roles of melody, harmony, rhythm, dynamics and chordal accompaniment, musical communication, organizing sets for flow and to showcase individual strengths, nuts and bolts of band business, basic mplification/sound equipment.

I know you are probably saying - yikes no way to do that in 1 1/2 hours, but those are the range of topics and we will tailor it to whoever shows up.

Please pass the word - we have found that having a diverse group of musicians makes the workshop even more interesting and worthwhile.
Claire
