“Make me an angel that flies from Montgomery.
Make me a poster of an old rodeo.
Just give me one thing that I can hold on to.
To believe in this living is just a hard way to go....”
John Prine
Good songs and good music, and good company to share them with....
So won’t you come on out to the Black Dog this Sunday afternoon (Yes! THIS Sunday afternoon!) and join us to share a few tunes at the Amazing Jam? Maybe some of yours, maybe some Prine, maybe some others you love to play....
(Pssst.... I have doubts Mr. Prine will be present in person, so the parking lot won’t be jam-packed full and it’s pretty much certain there’ll be a chair in the circle for you!)
The Black Dog, 227 West Front St. in Stirling.
 
We start up at 2 pm, run until 5....
 
Looking forward to see you there.
*And don’t forget to check the Facebook page ‘BV Amazing Music’ for postings about more music and events in this area. There’s something happening here....
The ‘Amazing Jam’! Even more amazing music...

This Sunday afternoon  at The Black Dog in Stirling. We’ll be
playing music there for about 3 hours. Welcomed by both staff and the patrons in the lounge and restaurant, our music is appreciated. 
 
Once a month on Sunday afternoons. This Sunday afternoon (July12th). Time is from 2 pm until 5.
 
The format is a ‘song circle’ with the lead changing from person to person among the group. Everyone has the option to offer a tune when their turn comes around, or pass to their neighbour if they’d rather. Depending on the music, the mood, choice of instruments, etc. some will choose to support whoever is leading a song, others may prefer to sit out and listen.  DSCF1663 
 
We invite you to come out and join us, making music with old friends; for sure, there’ll be some new faces too.

Remember....
 
“Bring your instruments, your voices and your music. It’s
a
ll unplugged
and it’s all good! Guitar, bass,
harmonica, banjo,
mandolin, ukulele,
fiddle, accordion,
flute, celtic harp – the list goes on.
 
“There may be only 4 or 5 o
f
us or maybe a whole room full of
musicians. A place for
‘first-timers’ and experienced players alike.
A
good bunch of pe
ople playin
g all kinds of music together.
People in
their teens all the way through proto-geezers. Maybe even an DSCF1647sincipient-geriat or two....
 
 
“The blues does not rule.
Any acoustic music from punk
to polka!”

Hope to see you Sunday afternoon in Stirling.
