  6. Sure David, I would be glad to play with you on JK. Cindy and I just participated in a zoom Augusta play-around as we were streaming in JK. It worked well enough and was loads of fun.

  8. No denying it, this concert was rife with problems. During our hour long soundcheck everything was going great. Then, two min. before showtime, Cindy crashed in Jamkazam and had to set up a new Youtube stream. She posted the new URL on the old stream as a visual and in chat there. An amazing 25 folks managed to follow us into the new youtube link and we performed the concert starting only 15 min. late. At the time, the concert sounded OK to us two performers, but in listening back to the youtube recording (that you can hear above, thanks to David Barnert) we realized that the transmission sound quality was very poor with continuous random distortion and artifacts. Our audience complained a bit about that in chat, but I like to think that our musicianship shone brightly through that dirty window and a grand time was had by all despite the audio problems. Cindy not only plays autoharp but she loves digging her nerdy teeth into this kind of challenge. We are both working out our future plans with a tech overhaul that will hopefully lead to a better concert experience in the future. We hope to present our new and improved concert format, tentatively scheduled for Sunday, July 12 at 3:30 pm EDT (8 in the UK). Wish us luck! There are a thousand ways to mess up.
  9. Looking forward to presenting our show for you on Sunday June 21 at 3:30 pm (UK time 8:30 pm). We will be streaming our live duet concert via YouTube for your listening and viewing pleasure. Here's the link: Never mind the odd graphic. A story best untold. Cindy Harris is a master of the autoharp which sounds so melodious in combination with my concertina playing. Expect jigs, reels, polkas and a few songs all played live, in the key of JamKazam. See you Sunday!
  10. Some of you may have been following the “Playing together across an internet connection“ conversation: https://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?/topic/22128-playing-together-across-an-internet-connection/page/4/&tab=comments#comment-204259 Autoharp wizard Cindy Harris and I have figured how to move forward for our next duo concert. We plan to perform in real time together on Jam Kazam and stream it live onto your device via Youtube. Join us on Sunday, June 21st at 3:30 (US Eastern time, that's 8:30 pm in the UK) to see and hear how it’s done. No magic or tricks, actual simultaneous playing, though Cindy and I live 400 miles apart. It can be done! Mark your calendars. More info to follow.
  11. Over the last two months, Jody Kruskal and Cindy Harris have been pursuing the Holy Grail of physically distanced musicians: playing together over the internet. Now, after many late nights and hours of practice on Jam Kazam, you are invited to witness a concert of delightful duets and songs from far and wide performed on concertina and autoharp. You're sure to be delighted and entertained as they share their lag-defying musical magic in front of a live audience on Zoom. Bring an instrument and play along or sing along -- we won't hear you, but that won't diminish your joy! Join the live Zoom audience here: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89784339917?pwd=WndwcEVDSEVOeCtDNkRoL2gzL243QT09. In addition, the concert will also be streamed live to Cindy's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CindyHarrisAutoharp/live, This event starts at 8:30 in the evening, England time (3:30pm in the afternoon US EDT). Though attendance is free, tips will be gratefully accepted! Looking forward to seeing many of you on Sunday. Cindy & Jody P.S.
