Well, here we all are: 2 weeks into 2012 and – whatever the vagaries of the Mayan calendar may be – the world still hasn’t ended. Kinda gives a fella hope.
Reckon we got to give it a bit more time....
And, while we’re waiting around for that to happen we'll continue playing and singing at the'The Amazing Coffee' in Madoc every Sunday afternoon. So come on out and join us this Sunday. Bring your instruments, your voices and your songs for more amazing music at our weekly acoustic jam in Madoc. We'll be starting up the tunes around 2 in the afternoon and running until 4 pm or after.'The Coffee' is on the corner of Russel St. and Prince Albert just a couple of blocks south of Hwy 7. Highway 62 (Russel St.) runs right past the door!
It's all unplugged and it's all good! We've had guitars and basses and harmonicas and banjos and mandolins and fiddles and accordians and flutes and saxophones and a dobro player and even a harpist with a reallynice celtic harp. (Check out the pictures.) There's a piano over in the corner that's fairly much in tune and, heck, there's even a drummer who usually manages not to deafen us playing on a snare with soft nylon brushes. And the music is just terrific. Never know who will be there but it's always worth coming out and joining in.
Thanks to everyone who comes out to play music together, "bringing it all back home".
Welcome new faces, familiar ones and small faces too. And welcome to all the people whose pleasure it is to stop by 'the Coffee' on Sunday afternoons and listen to the music while they sip their coffees, enjoy their sandwiches and pastries, use the high-speed internet...
Share a song or two, or several...
So come on out this Sunday aft and "get yer lovin' spoonful". Help us make just a spoonful of Amazing Coffee worth 2 or 3 cups of that other stuff from up the road.
