Neste domingo dia 27 de Fevereiro ocorreu a primeira edição oficial do Town Hall Meeting do professor Darren Barrett. A alguns meses atrás eu escrevi sobre o recital do seu ensemble e mencionei quão diferentes e especiais costumam ser os eventos concebidos pelo professor. Em Dezembro de 2010, o recital ocorreu em uma sala de aula, ontem a reunião foi na Cafeteria da escola, onde alunos apresentam seus grupos diariamente.

Think music-college students can’t play bluegrass? The Berklee crew seriously showed off its chops at the 31st annual Lowell Banjo and Fiddle Contests on Sept. 11 at the Lowell National Historic Park. Students took first place in six of the eight categories. Said top alt-styles fiddler Bronwyn Keith-Hynes, “It was a pretty good day!”
It’s relatively quiet here in Boston as the summer semester settles in… though it’s 52 degrees today… because many students have left town. And many take advantage of the warm season to TOUR!
Luckily, we get to follow some of them here. Singer/songwriter Liz Longley will cover her experiences on the folk circuit, several bands will report from jazz festivals, and mandolinist Eric Robertson will blog bluegrass. Along the way, we expect to hear about huge crowds, leaky tents, and late-night brushes (jam sessions) with stardom.
