Thanks to all who came to Zeeland to jam on such a gorgeous day! It's been awhile since we met last spring. There were 17 of us who shared tunes yesterday afternoon. Welcome to newcomers Rita and Lois who added the flavor of mountain dulcimers, and to our own Regina, whose fiddle playing is renowned! There's nothing like Regina to get everyone up to foot-stompin' speed!

For your music collection, a new tune is in the file area. "Stone's Rag" can be found in the Extras Sheet Music. There will be a midi file later in the week. Stone's Rag was played by Owen and Jim, and everyone enjoyed hearing it's rousing rhythm.

See you next on October 18!

Hi, Gail.
Yes, Regina is tee-riffic and I truly enjoy listening to (and watching her) and jamming with her at Evart. But I'll tell ya, Pam Bowman is right up there with Regina when it comes to giving life to the jamming (and speed when it is called for, as well). Wish we were in closer proximity to one another so I could make your group sessions. Oh, well, maybe one day I'll take the plunge and come and sit in with you all if that is permitted.
Keep on playin'
