Folkies - Sunday 2/18/2008

This is just an example of the kind of riff raff I am likely to be hanging out with on any given Sunday. Hydra and I have been members of Songmakers for about ten years now. Getting involved with them is one of the best things we've ever done.

These are the folks we go camping with 4-5 times a year. We have the opportunity to make music with 30-40 of the approximately 500 members every weekend. They're a talented, supportive, smart, caring, fun group. It's all about keeping homemade music alive, and having fun doing it.

Fooling around with my camera outside the church hall where we met for the annual Round-up, during which board members are elected, each hoot (from all around SoCal) plays a song or two, and we have a potluck.

Cool Thing: The way Stephen Colbert welcomed his writers back to the fold. (Thanks Toronto, for the tip!)

That sounds really fun. I need to become more musically inclined. I have one of the worst singing voices in human history and never fully learned to play any instrument. One of these days though.
