Goosetown Stringband

Attended the Illowa Folk Dance Series monthly dance at Singing Bird Nature Center last night and got to sit in with the Goosetown Stringband. Big FUN!!! A real treat! I even got to dance a dance! I'm not sure which is more fun?!?!?

The bass player was not available to play last night and I don't believe it is the one pictured. But the fiddler, Dave "Top Shelf" Mehaffey; banjoist, Brian Gotwals; and guitarist, Marc Janssen were there. Got to play a tune I've heard in the past but not played before, Ladies on the Steamboat. One for my "Learn" list. It's such good craic to make music with these solid musicians and gentlemen!
