Summer Escapes - The Joy of Singing Together

No secret that Great Escapers like to sing and make music! Recently the plaque joined some GE people, plus guests from all over the Eastern Seaboard (North Carolina, MD, PA, NJ and CT) at one of Central and Western MA's camps to sing and play all weekend long!

...And some just clap their hands, feet, or anything they got!
 The Singleterry neighborhood was having an encampment, so we did a singalong with the kids (can't resist a chance to teach girl members!) Kaye, Karen B. from GSCNC and Kathy J. put together an autoharp and recorder 'performance' and we had a special guest!  Mountain Dulcimer player Cathy, whom Kaye, Kathy, Deb and Tammy met at the Latham NY Cranberry Gathering last year, came to show us her beautiful instruments and play some lovely songs.  Afterwards, the lucky laminate got to inspect a dulcimer (she brought 3)  and meet Cathy.

This weekend is an annual June event masterminded by the ever effervescent Kaye and if you are interested in attending next year, whether for the weekend or just Saturday, make sure to let Kaye or Kathy J. know the next time you see them.  And bring your instruments, whether it's a guitar, harp or tambourine.  You can even shake your maracas!
