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.
Here are the songs we will be playing for our up-coming Folklife appearance.
This is NOT in set order yet, and there may be changes. We are also working on getting music posted for some of the new songs.
If any of you are available on TUESDAY, APRIL 5TH, AT 8:20 am,
we will be rehearsing many of these songs with RISE (the younger group) in the Chautuaqua music room. I'd love it if any or all Folklifers could join us. This may require a note for McMurray students to leave school for an hour that day.
Otherwise, we will be holding 3 rehearsals in May at Zombiez before Folklife.
May 12th, Zombiez, 3:45--4:45
May 18, Chautauqua Music Room, 8:20-9:05am
