Allegretto Musical Instrument Demonstrations performed today for William O'Donnell's class at Harwich Tech. We had an hour program which featured Patrick O'Brien on accordion, Clayton March on mandolin and clarinet, Brenda Rogers on flute and alto flute, Denya LeVine on ukulele and penny whistle, David Macadam on various sized recorders, Lewis Masson on Highland Bagpipes, Dinah Mellin on fiddle, and Dennis Dillon on blues guitar. For information on how you can contact Allegretto Outreach call 508-255-3864. Www.allegrettocapecod.org We are supported by local Cultural Council grants and private donations. The Cape Cod Foundation oversees our Allegretto Fund in order that donors will be able to get a tax deductible donation when giving to us. our musicians are paid a minimal fee for their time in the schools. All members of Allegretto are able to make an appearance in the schools during regular school hours. Some of us are professional musicians, some are retired from long careers and love playing music and sharing the love of music with the future generations. We also can work on a sliding scale, so that our mission can be carried on: We want to spark that interest in a child so that they say to themselves "I want to learn the violin, or the trumpet or the piano" etc. Music has been taken out of many schools, and we try and bring it back, music is a vital tool in a child's academic life. It helps in concentration, it. Helps with socialization, confidence and it is known to help in a child's math abilities. So many reasons to take on lessons in music, making a lifetime friend (the instrument or two), and creating a source of pride.

What I did this Summer ;-)

Performed with The Cape Cod Fiddlers, Celtic-Folks, Longing For Ireland, The Orleans Inn Irish Session. Tim Joyce and His Bag O'Cats. Camped at Ossipee Valley Music Festival, S. Hiram, Maine, July 22 and 23 while Tim&Bag O'Cats performed on Stage Too!
Visited Grand Manan Island, NB Canada - to help host a fundraiser/music variety show and lobster roll dinner at The Curling Rink, for The Swallow Tail Lighthouse Keeper's House July 9. Went back up for three weeks to also host and perform at Fundraiser 2 at Covert Hall sharing the stage with "Before The Mast" Sea Shanty Band from St. John, NB. While on the island I discovered Eel Brook Falls and Hay Point trails. I cared for my mother at our summer house, and also had some quality time with my two sisters. Survived unscathed by Hurricane Irene and enjoyed listening to my Dad's recorded narration of his novel "Dead Man's Tide" as the wind was blowing all around- no rain!
On Sept. 3rd I hosted Kathleen Gorey-McSorley and Carolyn Holyoke of Fredercton, NB, Canada, in a house concert here. What a supremely talented 17 year old Kathleen is! She celebrated her birthday during the concert, and we all had cake.
Had a full house, a fine potluck, and a jam session followed till the wee hours. Check out Brick Hill House Concerts. next show is Nov. 6

About Me

My photo
Fun loving Celtic/Folk/Blues fiddle player and artist. It's more about the interaction with fellow musicians than about being a soloist! I love where I can go, in and around the tunes.. I am an illustrator and graphic artist. Love abstract art/design. One day I'd love to do a cover for The New Yorker.
