May brings us another month with five Tuesdays. As is customary, instead of a sing around we'll be having a Members Showcase concert to bring you some of our talented members performing in short sets during the evening. It's always entertaining, and definitely fun! Join us on May 29th for this uniquely Golden Link event.
Mike Reynolds, back from his trek to Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands, perhaps with an Inca or (if only) Iguana-influenced folk! He not only keeps the newsletter coming to you (Vern Lindberg, guest editor for April, can attest to the labor needed!) but sings, accompanying himself on guitar.
Barry's Balladeers is a eclectic gang of folk players who have been meeting Saturdays 12-2 in Webster at Barry's Old School Irish since early 2017. It is a typical jam where folks call out songs, and we all do our best to follow along. We play mostly out of "Rise Up Singing" and "Rise Again" and everyone is encouraged to participate in every song. The instrumentation is heavily acoustic guitar based, but we also regularly see ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, an occasional bass, and we even have promise of a concertina soon. It has turned into a great group of friends, and we hope to share some of that friendship, through voice and chords, with you all on May 29th.
Joan Burch considers herself “a late bloomer.” She feels that music was always waiting for her to take the leap to express it – and in 2007, she began writing songs and performing as a singer songwriter. Now, she’s known for her voice as well as her songs.
Joan’s music is a fusion of folk and jazz/pop, modeled after classic singer songwriters from the 70s, including: Carol King, Jackson Browne and Dan Fogelberg along with others. Joan writes what comes to her, putting her thoughts about people, places and situations into lyrics and melodies. Joan’s songs are a composite of her feelings expressed as one unit, which may explain why some songs are reflective and mellow, and others have humor and even some bite to them. Joan is currently recording an Ep of new song and has a website: JoanBurch.com.
