Another very exciting House Concert is coming up in Middletown:

MICHAEL ROONEY (harp, concertina) & JUNE MCCORMACK (flute)

DATE: FRI. Oct 8
TIME: 8 PM
VENUE: 145 Margarite Rd. Ext. (Please find Directions at end of this email or ring Jody)
SUGGESTED DONATIONS: $20, $10 conc.

For RESERVATIONS please contact
Jody Cormack Viswanathan at 860-346-4422 or 860-685-3826.

"The playing by Michael Rooney and June McCormack ... indeed casts a spell--not the kind that puts you in a coma, but the kind that provides sustained, seamless pleasure." (Earl Hitchner)

I feel truly honored to have these outstanding young musicians perform in "our own humble four walls," having admired their unique musicianship for a long time. Don't miss an evening of magic music!

Please find more artist info and directions below.

Also, on a short notice, there'll be another not to be missed concert this Tuesday, Sep 21 on the Wesleyan Campus. Swedish Band VASEN will be performing in the Multi Purpose Room in the Student Center on Church Street at 8pm. Visit
http://www.drone.se/english/vasen.html for band info. A student organization, the World Music Collective is putting on the gig and I am totally psyched about it! You can call the Wesleyan Coordinator's Office for Directions (860-685-2280).

Further Upcoming events will include a fund raising event for our house concert series in November (we had to reschedule from the original date and will let you know more details soon).

Old-timey fiddler/singer/guitarist BRUCE MOLSKY is playing a solo acoustic show on Sun, Nov 7 at 3pm in Russel House/Wesleyan Campus. The gig is FREE and there'll be a lovely coffee/snack reception after the gig.

Scottish guitar wizard TONI MCMANUS and BRUCE MOLSKY will be playing Wesleyan on Dec.2. More info soon.
Sin e for now.
Look forward to seeing you Oct. 8th.

All the best,
Anna

June Mc Cormack
June comes from Ballintogher, Co. Sligo. She won the senior flute competition at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann in 1998. In the same year, June was presented with the Young Traditional Musician of the Year award by TG4 (Irish Language T.V. Channel). An album recorded with the group ‘Síona’, took Ireland by storm in 1998.


DIRECTIONS:



from north:

take Route 9 south to exit 11. Turn left at the end
of the ramp. Go through
blinking lights and past firehouse. Turn left at the
first set of traffic lights
(Millbrook Rd.). Go exactly one and a half miles.
Turn right onto Livingston Rd.
(landmark is Daniel's Farm on the left, just before
the turn. If you pass the
powerlines, you've gone too far!). Take Livingston
Rd., as it winds around a
little, to the first street on your left (Margarite
Rd. Ext.). Landmark is a stop
sign facing the other way. Number 145 Margarite Road
Ext. is the house at the fourth
mailbox, PAST the powerlines, on the right. The
house number 145 Margarite
Rd. Ext. is on the mailbox.

Same directions work from the south, except take
Route 9 north to exit 11.

Er... Middletown in which state or province?
The phone numbers tell me it's US or Canada, but I misplaced my Area Code list. :unsure:

Ah. The last time I was there the Area Code was still 203 for the entire state of Connecticut, and 860 wouldn't have been a valid Area Code.

I only vaguely knew the 860 area code (it was added after I moved away from Connecticut), but the clue of Wesleyan University being in Middletown helped.
