Old Time Music Hour #54: New songs and tunes from CD Submittals, a double shot of Black Eyed Suzie and more great Old Time Music. Enjoy!
It's almost time! We Rounders are making our set lists and checking them twice. And looking forward to many opportunities to share tunes with you all at the Festival. We have also booked a few dates in Scotland and England, and are hoping to see some familiar faces there, as well as folks who may know nothing about Old Time Music. To that end, we would appreciate any help in sharing our tour list, either with this wee poster, or through our Facebook links.
Our band page is Reed Island Rounders: https://www.facebook.com/Reed-Island-Rounders-252614427128/
You will find there an event link for our "Mini tour ~ Scotland/England": https://www.facebook.com/tours/418611872232513/ This link has more details about times and locations.
Any sharing is fine with us - especially as y'all know more music lovers in your country than we do!!
Although wifi will be spotty for us en route, any questions could be directed to:
See you soon, and hopefully the sun will shine!!!

As an incentive to members, I will be drawing out one name at the AGM, from a list of everyone (excluding committee) who has contributed to Old Time News over the last year (issues 93-96). The winner will receive one year’s free membership next time his/her renewal is due.
Following on from the fun at Gainsborough Festival there will be a dance party on Saturday March 2nd 2019 from 7-11pm.
Musicians and dancers welcome.
Musicians play and dancers free style, there will also be a few square dances during the evening.
Please wear hard soles as the music will be accoustic and loads of taps get noisy.
Bring some food to share.

There will be two members of the committee who will not be seeking re-election in their existing roles at the AGM. This will leave us with a vacancy for a treasurer and a vacancy for our workshop/publicity member but with one applicant.
If you want to put yourself forward for one of these posts or know of someone who does please either let us know via the form in the last Old Time News or give me the details at the AGM.
The treasurers position will of course require someone with relevant accounting experience.
The Honey Dewdrops
Acoustic duo The Honey Dewdrops treat listeners to a raft of memorable songs, performed with gorgeous vocal harmonies and exquisite musicianship on clawhammer banjo, acoustic guitars, mandolin and harmonica. Although undeniably steeped in old time and bluegrass, The Honey Dewdrops encompass both traditional and modern in their sound. Hailing from Virginia and now based in Baltimore, The Honey Dewdrops have been touring full time for almost ten years, but this will be their first UK tour, including their debut at the Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow.
