Think globally, rock locally
There are so many "closet" folk musicians around and you can find them everywhere, and every community should have one. Last year two ladies, Judi Altstatt and Jeanne Fisher created the Allen Folk Music Society in Allen, Texas. This year, they're branching out to help establish a place for all these quiet folk musicians in the Allen Community and beyond to meet, share coffee, and hear/or play Folk, Old Timey, Celtic, Irish, Bluegrass, and pop music, as well as a place for storytelling, and just socializing with like-minded folk. They're going to start meeting at the Allen Depot Museum centre in the heart of old-town, Allen, Texas.
The KelticDead has now joined in with the vision that these two ladies have, and we'll soon be having a kickoff coming this October. If there's enough interest, the concept of the Allen Depot Coffeehouse idea will continue to be a monthly event to help folk musicians have a place to play acoustically or live. Let me know, and I'll give you more details.
