It's been an interesting month -- finally getting back to some dulcimer gigs for the Christmas season, but so sad to have Celtic Treasures permanently closed, since it's where I really enjoyed playing dulcimer most Saturday afternoons. We'll be looking for a new dulcimer venue eventually, so that I can stay in practice! Jim broke his toe, just before we had a couple weeks of daily snowfall, so the shoveling has kept me busy between holiday activities. Everyone has been on edge in Alaska with frequent aftershocks since the November quake. Our Irish sessions have been wonderful with Sky, Cilla Scrady, Ben Saylor, and now Mike and Tania are back in town! We expect these to continue with different folks coming and going. Looking forward to longer daylight and (hopefully) diminishing aftershocks!
