just moved up here. is this session still active?

Re: The Parting Glass

As of August, 2018 this session is still going stong. John Guay (hammered dulcimer) and Vonnie Estes (keyboard) are still the mainstays of the operation; other personnel vary over the weeks, months and years.

For the remainder of August, this session will move to Tuesday nights, resuming Wednesday nights in September. Except that there is no session the week of August 12-18. The Parting Glass events calendar ( does not yet have the September sessions posted, but we expect them to be added by the beginning of the month.

One of the big treats of the past couple of years is that two professional musicians, John Kirk and Trish Miller ( have been attending the session two or three nights a month. They are tremendous musicians and just great, fun people. Their presence has been a wonderful addition.

Re: The Parting Glass

I assume that there is no session on the night of 25 December (2019)

Re: The Parting Glass

Social distancing outdoor session, returns this Wednesday (July 15, 2020) after a 3 month hiatus (due to COVID-19 lockdown). Limited seating, weather dependent. Make sure you are not a carrier, and WEAR your MASKS!

Re: The Parting Glass

Actually, that was a FOUR month lockdown, not just three. Let the music play now !

Re: The Parting Glass

Indoor sessions each Wednesday start at 7pm (with masks optional at this point, in future depending on Covid numbers in Saratoga County).

Re: The Parting Glass
