This Week's Program:
Come enjoy a laid back afternoon of songs and tunes by a fire with LRCC member Paul! Or just come for the s’mores! This event will be a performance/campfire jam session with a focus towards tunes and songs related to the outdoors and environmental conservation. Selections might include songs from artists such as Pete Seeger, John Denver, and Bill Staines, interspersed with traditional tunes from styles played around the Northeastern United States and beyond. Participants are able to come and go as they please, with s’more materials being provided midway through the program.
What to Bring:
Please dress warmly for this outdoor event and consider bringing along something to sit on (blanket, chairs) and a thermos of something warm to sip on. While certainly not a requirement, musical instruments of all types are welcome to participate - bring a fiddle, guitar, shaker, some spoons or just your voice!
Audience: Families, Musicians, and Music appreciators of all ages are welcome! Children must be accompanied by an adult.
This Week's LRCC Guide:
Howdy campfire singers! My name is Paul, and I recently graduated with a degree in geosciences from Skidmore College before joining the mulch-slingers of the LRCC. While I may enjoy rock academically, my preferences musically generally fall into folk and traditional styles. I have been playing the fiddle for well over a decade now, picking up several other instruments along the way, and love sharing tunes from a variety of regional playing styles.
