Sing-Along with Rich! June 2015
June 14, 2015
A large group (30 people!) was present to enjoy music and song by Rich Atkinson, his wife Laura on recorder, harmonica and vocals, with members of the Montpelier Ukelele Group (Tom Wales and Bob Barrett) on vocals and ukes, plus Andy Leader on the fiddle!
Among other tunes, Rich had us singing, "This Land is My Land", by Woody Guthrie, and said that he'd like to make it our national anthem !
After we sang "Take Me Out to the Ball Game", Liz Dodd announced tha this September we'd be hosting former Red Sox pitcher Bill "Spaceman" Lee along with Vermont Mountaineers baseball team's General Manager Brian Gallagher.
Also in 2015, July's meeting will feature an ice cream social and a presentation by Vermont beekeeper Bill Marcinkowski, while in August we'll have storyteller and business owner Burr Morse, of Morse Farm in East Montpelier, coming to the Cafe to spin us some tales.
Here's a taste of the music we enjoyed on Saturday, June 13th, 2015:
