Saturday, May 2nd, Jam Opportunity

A  group playing for a Cobb County Fire Department family event this Saturday (5/2/09) has cancelled. As such they decided to morph this into a Bluegrass jam event to serve as entertainment. The Pathfinders were asked to consider covering this event, but most can not make it due to the late notice. Although a few of us are going, we would like to send an invitation out to anyone whom you may want to participate. Here are the details: Saturday May 2 11AM- 2 PM Sweetwater Park in South Cobb 2447 Clay Road Austell 30168 – click here for map

Jamming on YouTube

Hi everyone,

I got a tip-off from Holly, one of Wendy’s staff,  tonight, that we’ve been posted to YouTube.  I took a look and sure enough, there we are.

You may recall the young mandolin player, Tristan, who joined us several weeks ago on his birthday?  His mom shot several clips and posted them to YouTube.

Here are the direct URLs to the videos (March 11, 2009).
