What types of jobs to you get and how often? How often does your group practice?
We were just in a concert in West Hartford with the Dulcimer Folk Association. That is the highlight of our year.
We MAY be asked to participate in a Renaissance wedding in October. I think that would be really neat. For a few years, we volunteered ourselves as a raffle prize for a local Woman & Children's fundraiser. People would bid on us, and whoever won us, we would then go play at their function, be it a tea, or background dinner music, etc.
Right now we are in a summer hiatus. We will meet again in August, and if we do that wedding, we will begin focusing on that.
As you can imagine, there is a lot of history associated with this area. We are in Norwich, CT, and there is much Revolutionary War history, and historical societies, and events that take place. I/we have been background music as people stroll through the old, historical homes. That's one of my favorite venues.
I am located in Lisbon, CT and grew up in Norwich. I bought a Psaltery last summer after hearing one in church and I love the beautiful almost haunting sound. I’m assuming you play at the reenactment camps on the green in Norwichtown? Please post when you plan to perform next, I’d love to stop by.
Yes...I used to play at the Norwichtown Green. What church, may I ask, did you hear one played? That would be great! We would love to have you come to our psaltery picnic in Baltic (near the Sayles Elementary School) on August 20th. You can meet the other psaltery people from our area! Email me please, and I will give you further info. email@example.com
I look forward to it.
I have played for weddings, but not the Wedding March. I'm not sure where you might find a good arrangement for that. Best wishes.
