My digital camera got fried when the transformer I was using suddenly pumped out the wrong voltage. :x So all we have are a few 35mm photos.

These are on Imagestation. If they don't open, right-click on the little red box, then click on "open/view photo".

Here's Richard, our fearless leader.

As you can see, Al and I didn't call each other before we left to make sure we weren't wearing the same outfits. Just a coincidence ... it's not a cult uniform or anything.

And here's one of Dave on the banjo and Marilyn on the fiddle ...
Image

And maddogbob on his big old acoustic bass
Image

And Dave Bain playing the guitar and harmonica (or is that his dental retainer?)
Image

And Cleo, enjoying the music (we think). She became known as "click track" due to her habit of always deciding to join us while we were recording, with the mic picking up her claws click-click-clicking on the hardwood floor. Caused a couple of "take twos"

Can't wait for the "red carpet" release of the cd.

Yeah, Barbara, I know, you suggested I do it that way ages ago!

Hey, you should have joined us! You don't live that far away.

Yep - rockin' on is right.

This wasn't the recording session. This was the jam session of Sat night. I'm guessing this was our version of Steve Earl's "Copperhead Road," since I don't play mandolin too often.

Al and I picked up the shirts at a concert in Sudbury put on by the African Children's Choir. The choir is made up of kids age 7 to 11, all of whom have lost one or both parents to poverty or disease. They get to participate in the choir for a year, after which they return home and are provided with assistance to continue school, including post-secondary education. The funds they raise help not only themselves, but other kids back in African countries in similar situations.

If you ever get an opportunity to see them, snap up a ticket as quickly as possible. They're absolutely fantastic - playing a mix of gospel and high-energy, hard driving music from various parts of Africa. And can they dance! A fun show, and a very worthwhile cause.

See http://www.africanchildrenschoir.com for details.

Oh, now I really wish I had been there. Sorry I missed that. Dang.
