Hi folks – friendly reminder that the annual BBQ is taking place this weekend on the 1st of July. All are welcome – please contact the secretary for directions and more information.
Also, the L-Derry guitar weekend will take place in the Cultural Centre at 37, Great James Street in the city (http://culturlann.org/) Sat 25th and Sunday 26th of August. Sean has negotiated the use of this venue for the full weekend so we should have access to a range of rooms between 9am and 5pm each day. I have suggested to Sean that the we begin each day formally at around 10am in order to allow people to travel for just one day if they so wish. Also we can finish both days with a members’ recital so that everyone gets an opportunity to perform at some stage during the event. Sean will construct a programme around this framework and this will include a short recital by Sean himself of pieces which he can still play in spite of the focal dystonia. The cost of the weekend will be £40 per head (£20 for one day only). Of this £25 will be for Sean’s fee and £15 for the room hire with the balance being being paid from CGSNI funds.
Although the response has been excellent, and there are 16 people interested in attending all or part of the weekend, there is still time to register an interest with Keith. This should be a great event and we hope you can attend and support it!
