Hello RISKers,

For the next two weeks (Feb. 4th, and Feb. 11th) we will be holding RISK in the Chautauqua Music Room!!

For the kids who attend Chautauqua, this will be an easy commute.

For the rest of you, please park in the Chautauqua lot or the McMurray lot and join us in the music room.   The music room is through the main entrance, down the stairs immediately to your left, then take a right down the hallway, and you'll see the music room on your right.

If you attended the last concert, the music room is across the hall from the cafeteria where we performed.

Thanks and looking forward to seeing you all at Chautauqua!


Kim (feeling much better!)

Give me one reason for guitar and strings, RISK

Today we are posting (as promised) Give Me One Reason, as arranged by Shane and as originally recorded by Tracy Chapman. The first recording has all the parts together, the second recording is the first violin part, the last one is 2nd violin. The original album by Tracy Chapman, is called New Beginnings, and is a really great recording! I've provided a link to the album at the bottom. Enjoy!

Check out the song on the original album here, it is track 9:

Isaac Hanna's, fiddle tune sheet music for guitar and violin

Tonight's post of Isaac Hanna's is a great example of a tune that is easy to pick on the guitar, or bow on the fiddle while the guitar strums chords!

I resolve to take more RISK this year...

Happy  New Year!!  

Hoping your holidays have been peaceful and music-filled!

We are gearing up for a wonderful Winter/Spring session of RISK.

Already there are TWO gig dates to put on your calendar:

Feb. 14th, Love Duets Benefit for RISK!

March 9th, Contra Dance Benefit for RISK at the O Space!

We look forward to starting up sessions again THIS TUESDAY, Jan. 7th, 3:45 TO 4:45 at the Minglement/Roasterie Conference Room.

Our session will run through March 4th, for a total of 8th weeks.  We ask for a $5/week tuition or $35 for the entire 8 weeks (a little discount).  But no one will be turned away for lack of funds.  

Looking forward to rosining up the bows and strumming those strings with you all very soon!!
