Leitrim Fancy, another guest, and exciting news!

Last week's tune was "Leitrim Fancy", a lovely jig that hovers between Gmajor and Eminor. We listened to the Bothy Band shredding it (a good thing according to the Year 9s I've been teaching), then learned it slowly.

This week we have the pleasure of another guest tutor. Cath Ovenden, a Maleny-based fiddle player, will come and teach a tune, and this time Nicole will be there to provide supper and enjoy learning from someone else.

And in an exciting follow-up to the last post, Cloudstreet performed at the lovely Mt Beauty Music Festival in the Victorian Alpine country, and just found out, we were voted Artist of The Festival by the audience survey! Yay!!! We enjoyed the whole festival, from singing in the primary school, to all the concerts, and even the rather early morning gospel gig!

See you at tunes on Wednesday
