OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Elm Dance, During a Past Earth Day Celebration

 

Last-minute surprises
for the Green Connections’ Earth Day celebration
tomorrow at Turtle Rock Farm.
Matthew Hill, who we got to know
while he was helping Tom Temple
frame the strawbale hermitage,
is also a fiddler. (Some nights,
during those building days, he
and Tom and Bob Powell, also
a carpenter-musician, made great music
during evening jams.)
Matthew has arranged for his friends
Bill and Patty Cummings,
from Flagstaff, Arizona,
to play music tomorrow at the Earth Day
celebration. Bill is a fiddler extraordinaire,
Matthew raves. Patty plays guitar
and Matthew will join them on the fiddle,
playing Celtic and traditional American music.
We are glad they happened
into Oklahoma this weekend!

And,
we learn this morning,
Bill McClelland, from Green Country Sierra Club,
is bringing Loblolly Pine seedlings
to share!
