I'm in the mid Hudson Valley further down as well.(Putnam county)Would be interested in getting together with any local mandolin cafe folk to play. The past few months have been attending a monthly Irish session down here, and its been a great experience!

Hi Richard and Tom;
Thanks for your response. No, I knew nothing about the gathering last year but I would love to know if it will happen again.
Maybe we could plan a meeting.I live near Woodstock. I'm fairly flexible regarding schedule. I'm not what you would call an "accomplished" player but I can hold my own in melody and accompaniment and I have a good sense of rhythm and I do love the music.

Will your folks be going to the Irish Week at East Durham?

Is that a good time?

I've been told it's tough to find lodging in the area for the Week unless you book a year in advance... Is that right?

I'd like to go... thinking about it...

I may be vacationing in the Woodstock area for a week or so in August, and if so, may be up for a session...

meanwhile, let me ask... is the Irish week you're talking about in that area? If so, when is it, and can you send me a link to more info?

I can meet anytime except 30th-8th due to symposium madness. John,
it sounds like we'd be compatable.
