Let them eat cake!

Tuesday, June 5, 2012

Hi All,

We had a great time at the Macrae Sisters house concert on Saturday night.  The concert was a benefit for the Crag Law Center and raised over $800 for Crag.  Thanks, Macraes!  The festivities included a pot-luck dinner and a couple of cake walks.  Here's just a few of the cakes that folk brought to contribute to the fun:

 

We followed the concert with a picking party and had three different jams going on in the house until about one in the morning.  Big time fun!

Scott

I learned the basics of clawhammer back in college in Sacramento, California, in the early eighties. But I didn't go very far with it at that time and eventually put my banjo aside for many years. I got interested again through the old time music revival going on here in Portland, Oregon, and started playing in earnest in the spring of 2004. I primarily used Perlman's, Leftwich's, and Krassen's books to learn, but also attended American Banjo Camp three times and the Dusty Strings Clawhammer Banjo Workshop twice. It was very cool to learn directly from some of the well known players in both cases. In 2006 I started attending festivals and getting out to jams. Then I played with local stringband Ebenezer for a couple of years, from 2007-2009. I started learning old time fiddle four years ago.
