Fiddling about

I normally don't plug musical events up here, especially musical events a day's drive away, but this one, I think, deserves a mention.

David LaFlamme and his reconstituted It's a Beautiful Day will be appearing at the Swallow Hill Music Association in Denver on Saturday, 28 May.

Twenty-four bucks in advance, twenty-seven on the show date, but there's a good reason to show up a day early besides saving $3: one of LaFlamme's vintage violins from the Sixties will be offered at a silent auction in the Association's Daniels Hall starting that Friday, with the proceeds donated to the Swallow Hill Music School. David describes the instrument as "German made in excellent condition, with bow & case." If you're trying to work up those "White Bird" licks, it just might help to have a genuine period instrument.
