Maundy Thursday Band
As I sort out what to do with the old blog, one of things that may happen is that I dump interesting other posts and vids here. In that spirit, here is the "band" playing at Maundy Thursday. For those not in the know, we have at the Eliot Church a liturgical Old Time band with rotating members. The core is Lee Manuel, Chris Lindquist, and myself. We are called upon to play at church when we can lend something to the proceedings. Occasionally we play at parties for free beer and burgers. Anyway, this Maundy Thursday we took up our usual place as the house band for the evening communion service. Rev. Tara Humphries officiated, which freed me up to be in the band. Chris also played guitar and my old college pal (and college bandmate) Alex Rapp joined us on fiddle.
Anyway, it has been a while. There was a plague. But it was great to be back! We played four songs in the Americana gospel genre. All of them have lives outside of church contexts, which we try to do with whatever we select.

This is my old weblog of many years. I will probably post here from time to time is there is a subject that does not fit WWG. However WWG is the more active page at this point.
