It feels like summer, but the fall migrations start in a couple of weeks. Many threatened and endangered bird species will be heading south on journeys of many thousands of miles, and they do it at night. Please help them by turning off as many lights as possible for the next two months.

This year's camp is limited to 45 students. Sign up NOW if you want to go: https://www.moabfolkcamp.com/registration.html
My Sunday jam sessions will be on hold until I return from Alaska. My next house jam will be Sunday August 8th from 3 to 5 pm. Cheers!
I went to a blues/jazz performance there last night and it was quite enjoyable. It's an intimate venue with a bar. In addition to the stage side of the place, there is a separate "library" set up for social interaction. According to Michelle, there will be performance every Friday night at 7 pm, but they will open at 4 pm so people can gather, jam, talk, etc.
Precedence Upstairs is a pretty new venture for downtown Montrose and is still developing. On the 20th they're featuring Big Band music. Check out their website: https://www.precedenceproductions.com for more info and upcoming events.
Thanks for the RSVPs I've rec'd! :) Any new additions, pse let me know so I can set up adequately.
JAM SESSION / SING-ALONG
Mondays, 4:00 - 6:00 pm
Montrose Senior Center Crafts Room
Join us if you play an acoustic instrument and/or sing!
This is a casual group that you can attend as your time
permits. Each person gets a turn to pick and lead a song,
and others play along. Call Cindy at 970-252-4884 if you
have questions. Spectators who enjoy listening to music
are also welcome to attend.
For anyone interested in attending this year, here's the latest update from Cosy:
Here’s some of the things we are considering in moving forward with having camp. Camp will be smaller – with 40 campers and 10 staff. If things open up later, we can increase our numbers. All campers must be vaccinated and masks will be required in some situations (classes inside in smaller rooms). This may change by October.
If we hold camp this year, we will plan to have all classes at the Moab Arts & Recreation Center (the MARC), where there are two large, well ventilated rooms (and one smaller one) for classes. If the weather is good we can have some classes outdoors.
We will not be using the cottages where our gatherings were pretty crowded, and we will not be preparing a group meal (although plans will be made for group gatherings where everyone brings their own food). Given all this, the camp experience will be a bit different, but we are doing our best to be sure all are safe; we do not want to create an event that might contribute to anyone contracting the virus.
We will announce our final decision about camp on July 1. If we decide to have camp, registration will open on July 2. Acceptance to camp will be first come-first served. (procrastinators are on notice!)
If you are thinking of attending camp, you might consider reserving a hotel room (or AirBnB) now, which could be cancelled if camp is not held or if you decide not to come.
Reminder, jam at my place 3 to 5 pm on Sunday 6 June.
PM me for directions and access to our Dropbox song files.
Sunday, 6 June from 3 to 5 pm. Please RSVP, max of 6 people. Will once again plan on being outside unless weather gets ugly. If you haven't come before, email me at alaskan.mariner @yahoo dot com for details and an invitation to our extensive song list on Dropbox
