We have been mostly or entirely playing out of the booklet for NEFFA.
If you’re going to NEFFA tomorrow (Sunday, April 23, 2023), please stop by our event, Pasttime with good company. The original title, which was less interesting but more descriptive, was “Social Polyphony”. It’s the music English-speaking people in the 16th and 17th centuries sang and played together in social settings. There will be rounds, part songs, lute songs, and hymns. The audience will be given music and encouraged to join in.
We will not meet on Tuesday, April 25, 2023. Several people can’t come, and the rest of us could use a break. Otherwise:
We meet on Tuesdays at 7:45 pm at the home of Wendy Goble and Richard Schmeidler in Arlington Center. Please let me know if you want to come.
My electricity was connected on Friday. The flooring people are coming on Monday. There are still other things that need to happen before I can move back, but I have no reason to believe that any of them will be as difficult as the electricity was. A couple of days before the Eversource trucks arrived (6 of them, with 8 people), our contacts were still implying that it would be weeks before we could be put on a schedule. So I assume someone made a phone call. Many thanks to whoever helped and/or sympathized.
