Here are the details of the weekly Seasonista open mic session. Nearly two years on, these are still running. Everybody is welcome!

See below for the next date & time

If you haven't used Zoom before, it is worth signing up and installing it on your PC/device first, from https://zoom.us/. Painless and free.

All Seasonistas, past & present, welcome! The format is along the lines of an open mic session, with one person singing a song, and the rest of us (muted, to avoid horrible delays) can listen or join in, in the safe knowlege that nobody else can hear them! Then everyone gets un-muted for wild applause, and on to the next person.

Update - the next session is booked for Saturday June 11th, 20:30 London time (GMT+1), 12.30 West Coast.

Unless I hear different, Brian is hosting this time - Meeting ID: 622 972 7495 , no password
Well most of us around here “hear different” (and we’re proud of it!).
I can confirm that I shall host the festivities this weekend. Thanks Steve-O, we hope to enjoy your playing again one of these weeks!

I was sorry to miss this week's open mic session. The Colborne Library Ukulele Band put on a show on the barn stage of the late lamented Shelter Valley Folk Festival, just a half hour east of us and I had never heard them, so I flipped a coin and the open mic lost, but it felt good to support some local uke players. Some very impressive versions of St. Anne's Reel and Apache

Here's a quick shot of the stage:ColborneLibrary Ukulele Band.jpg

Sorry I missed this week, which I had hoped to do after two weeks away. But then Gary Barlow announced a solo show in York which I couldn't resist. Seriously, he was rather good...

Trying to get over laryngitis in time for open mike tomorrow. If I don't make it, can someone make a few poop jokes and sexual innuendos on my behalf? :D

Think I'll manage to sing, but it will have to be low register only. The rest is gone.

I think there may be two Erynn Marshalls.
The Canuck one was the one I have seen -
Erynn Marshall (born c. 1977) is a Canadian old-time fiddler, ethnomusicologist, teacher, and author.
She is originally from Victoria, British Columbia and later lived in Gibsons, British Columbia. In 1998 she traveled to Toronto to pursue graduate studies at York University, graduating in 2003 with an M.A. degree in ethnomusicology.


Here's Erynn Marshall with Carl Jones. Very nice. (Perhaps a different Erynn Marshall, but maybe not.)

Apologies everyone! I went through the steps to update the first post yesterday, but obviously the final "Save" did not work. Hope people got on OK. (Sent from a campsite with poor phone signal and even worse WiFi)

I will be missing presumed having a good time for the next few weeks (friends round for a meal, weekend away, folk festival), but if somebody can let me know who is hosting, I will try to keep the top post updated.
