Vox Hunters at Haile Farm Preserve Sunday Sept. 15th

If you were fortunate enough to attend the WLCT Annual Meeting last fall you heard the folk duo The Vox Hunters perform.

The Warren Land Conservation Trust is pleased to present a repeat performance – a free, peripatetic, open air concert at the Haile Farm Preserve on September 15, 2019. We will gather at the Preserve sign on New Industrial Way at 10:00 AM and then move on to some of the other beautiful sites within the Preserve. According to Ben Gagliardi, leader of The Vox Hunters, “We’ll aim to sing nature songs, bug songs, and of course we’ll have to do some old songs we’ve dug up from Warren and the rest of Bristol County.”

This is an event not to miss so SAVE THE DATE – Sunday September 15th – and join us to celebrate the wonders of the Haile Farm Preserve!

Old Time Lounge

 —  —

Nick-A-Nee's, 75 South Street, Providence, Rhode Island

The Old Time Lounge is a monthly Intermediate/Advanced Old Time music session, occurring every third Sunday, hosted by your friendly Providencians Armand Aromin, Benedict Gagliardi, Michelle Kaminsky, and Alan Bradbury.

PLEASE NOTE: In order to maintain a setting that is intimate, groovy, and doesn't risk getting out of hand and distracting from the melody of the tune, we are making this INVITE-ONLY for percussionists. If the session seems to be getting too big for its britches, we may have people rotate as to maintain said intimacy. This is Old Time Lounge, not Old Time Orchestra! Oh, and please be considerate of other merry-makers around you and don't be a stupid jerk!

Q: Old Time music! Does that mean I can play Irish music all night? A: Save for tunes that are commonly found in both types of music, or the occasional diversion, you may want to find yourself an Irish session, unless you enjoy sore disappointment.

Q: I play DADGAD guitar, but it looks like there's already one here. What do I do? A: First, that other guitarist is playing in standard, so kindly re-tune your guitar. Then, introduce yourself to the present guitar player/s and take turns accompanying the tunes. If you're learning the chords to the tune, watch the accompanist and play oh, so softly. Like, way softer than you think you should. You are learning the chords after all. And for Pete's sake, don't play your cool hip chords unless the other accompanists are in agreement!

Q: Hey, man, I've been waiting and there are too many guitar players here. I want my turn! A: Here's a lifehack for you: learn to pick the melody.

Q: It's been 10 minutes. Why are you still playing this goddamned tune I don't know? A: Sorry, I was busy enjoying this tune so much that I didn't hear you when you asked 8 minutes ago. You probably know it at this point, so try to figure it out and enjoy it with us, otherwise, you can record it and learn it for next time!

Q: I'm a percussionist and while I fully understand that djembe doesn't quite work in Old Time music, I'd still like to get involved. A: Well, my friend, if you'd like to get into the percussive aspect of Old Time music, then I suggest you pick up your feet, head to YouTube, and search for some flat-footing or clogging steps.
