Skunk Misery Ramblers:
Today’s (Oct. 2) Skunk meeting: 4:00, basement of church (NMCC, 1271 Durham Rd)
I will try to post here every meeting time, but sometimes we change on a dime, so if you’re new and want to try us out, always call me, Charlie, at 203-668-3735 to see what the latest is.
What’s a Sunk Misery Rambler? Our own fiddle club, made up of students and adults of various abilities, from beginners to really good pros. We play violins, mandolins, guitars, banjos, whatever. We’re not just old-time, but also Western Swing, Bluegrass, Celtic, and yeah, we throw in a little classical here and there.
It’s all part of our mission to get everyone playing, regardless of skill level, and enjoying the community feeling that you get when you play with friends. When you add in the goals of performing, it gets even better. It doesn’t matter how well we play, it’s that we do play, and bring joy to the audience wherever they may be, on a green, in a nursing home or at a real live function.
We meet almost every Sunday evening at 4:00 PM, plenty of time to get home for dinner and relax before Monday. Jump on in, we’re having a great time in a no-pressure, learning-based picking session. We usually meet in the church, back door, but when the weather gets nice, we head down to the green and crank away there. Just call 203-668-3735 (my cell, so don’t be thrown by the message) for information.
Right now, we’re polishing up our sets for a few low-key performances, and there’s plenty of room for more, so stop on in!
