SERIOUSLY FUN OLD AMERICAN MUSIC from the Gilboa Historical Society

Written By Editor on 1/3/21 | 1/3/21

DAVE RUCH & PHIL BANASZAK LOVE TO PUT SHINE TO AMERICAN traditional music — fiddle tunes, sea chanties, cowboy songs, Erie Canal ditties, mountain music, western swing, and original materials that sound old-timey. But due to Covid-19, they have created performances for virtual audiences. Their music will be most appropriate to usher in 2021!
.....With Dave & Phil's permission, we will show you 5 songs as a teaser for this wildly talented duo. Click here for their free performance through noon, January 7, 2021.

At noon on the 7th, REGGIE HARRIS will take over for the second January week with upbeat optimism about the air of freedom in America and the Catskills. He will then be followed by NANCY PAYNE, giving us another story about strong women — in this case, early American aviatrices
.....Then, these 4 talents will rotate performances throughout the rest of the winter months.

In late 2019, the Gilboa Historical Society received grants for performances to be held during 2020. For obvious reasons, these large, compressed events did not come off according to plan.
.....In their place, we are inviting you to a series of short virtual performances during each week of the 2020–2021 winter. Nancy, Dave, Phil, and Reggie will entertain us with stories (early American aviatrices and American veterans) and music (New York State, the Erie Canal, and the air, water, and earth of our Catskills.

This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered in Schoharie County by Greene County Council on the Arts dba CREATE.

Please forward this invitation to friends who might appreciate it.
.....These performances
are short (won't impinge on time);
are free (won't impinge on wallet)
are straightforward (won't lead down a trail of links)

A friend wanting to receive their own invitation, join the society, or update their contact information can download this form and fill in the email address and other information, and return it electronically or via snail mail (remember, we need that email address so we can provide you with each week's link).
