Berkeley Old-Time Music Convention botmc_announcments at berkeleyoldtimemusic.org
Sat Sep 24 01:30:41 EDT 2011


(oops - you can disregard the previous email about Art Rosenbaum - that was meant to go to the planning committee for next year.. But please free to send any suggestions of folks you would like to see to feedback at berkeleyoldtimemusic.org).

=============================

As mentioned in the previous email (BOTMC Contest Winners & Call for Feedback), here is the latest monthly calendar of oldtime music happenings in the SF Bay Area (plus major events elsewhere on the west coast).  The list includes recurring jams, pointers to venues, related organizations, and similar email lists. 

To receive this monthly calendar and other postings, subscribe to the OldtimeSF Yahoo group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/oldtimeSF.

This will likely be the last email blast on this list until we have news about next year's BOTMC events - see you next year!



==================================

News:

The instructor list for CBA Winter Camp (February 17-20 Friday-Monday,
President's Day weekend, at Walker Creek Ranch near Petaluma) is now
posted at http://www.cbamusiccamp.org/Instructors.html

CBA Music Camp now has a Facebook Page (replacing the existing Facebook Group) - visit http://www.facebook.com/cbamusiccamp and click Like.


Save the date: 

Lisa Ornstein (who is a master Quebecois fiddler, as well
as an expert in Round Peak fiddling - she learned from Tommy Jarrell)
will be doing a house concert tour with guitarist Dan Compton at
the end of October (see below for dates) - stay tuned for details. 
There will be workshops.

Shameless self-promotion department:

I will be playing with Uncle Dave (Kathrine Gardner, Dave Courchaine,
and myself) at the SF contra on Fri Nov 25. We'll also be at the
Hayward contra on Sept 25 as part of the BACDS Family Week Reunion.
