October 2018 - Gabe Strand and Friends at Square Dance

Old Time Jam at Quimper Grange - Wednesday, Oct. 3 at 7 PM


Fiddler and caller Dave Thielk
in the hen house!
I (Dave Thielk) will be leading tunes at Quimper Grange on Wednesday, October 3 at 7 PM.  I am going to play in crossed A and G.  I will teach Jim Shank in some detail, followed by mostly accessible but slightly odd tunes in A. After the break, I will be playing in standard (G) tuning, again focusing on mostly simple, but slightly quirky tunes.  A bunch of fun.
