Rock Island String Kollective of Vashon Island, Washington, is a string orchestra for all ages & skill levels that meets at our local coffee hang-out, most Tuesdays 3:15-4:15 at MInglement, the Vashon Coffee Roastery. Bring your Violin, Viola, Cello, Guitar, Ukulele, Mandolin, Banjo or Harp and learn Irish music, Klezmer, Cajun, and American Traditional Music in a supportive group setting. Newcomers welcome. $5/session or $40 per quarter. For more information, contact Kim Thal.
Tomorrow (11/4) we will be delighted to welcome Dave Lang and Melanie Salonen to teach us some Cajun tunes! Come one, come all! It's going to be a great time!
Next Tues. (11/11) we are scheduled to play in the Thriftway Foyer from 2:00-2:30. I'm not sure about chairs for guitars, but I might borrow a few from Minglement or see if TW has some. If you can stand, that would be helpful as we are trying to keep our space down to a minimum. Also, we need bags or boxes to collect cans for the food bank.
Please bring a music stand if you need one.
Let's arrive 15 minutes prior (1:45) to get set up.
