Report on the RMIMR (Rocky Mountain Irish Music Rendezvous)
We had a great time this weekend. Everyone was here.
We had Will Harmon, who couldn’t remember any tunes on Friday night, finally got drunk enough to remember some stuff by Saturday, and then sliced his finger open on Sunday morning.
We had Dave Lewicki, who still needs a hair cut, and insisted on playing flute all weekend, even though the phrase "you suck" didn’t seem to get through.
And of course, Eliot Jacobson, who kept whining about just about everything, especially sleeping on the floor. He also lead a flute player whining workshop, leading with examples such as "that’s not a flute tune" and "that’s not the right key for that tune."
But of course, we were gracious hosts and can’t wait to do this again next year.
Dave and Eliot recorded a tune together to share with everyone here. This gives you an idea of the high callibre instrument exchange portion of the weekend.
Doug and Jane, as usual, were too nice and too spectacular, and were kind enough to leave us a week’s worth of tamales.
Till next year,
Aimee & Richard
