Spinners Challenge Event:  So You Think You Can Spin !!

Friday, August 29

Lyle and Arlene Gowing, the directors of the LCCC Textiles Workshop, are holding a Spinning Contest that will culminate in an official measuring event today. Every spinner who registers will receive a box of fiber, which she or he must spin into a finished two-ply yarn that does not weigh any more than the original weight. The longest two-ply yarns will receive cash prizes!

To learn more, call the Gowings at 541-992-5150.

In Concert:  10 String Symphony & the Tattletale Saints

Thursday, Sept. 4   7 pm

Two 5-string fiddles, two voices, the occasional banjo and resonator mandolin, played by four hands belonging to Rachel Baiman and Christian Sedelmyer. They make music they like to call “Acoustic/Folk/Old-time/Blurrrgrass Madness,” that has also been called “aggressive, almost discordant, Celtic and dare I say punky string-chording experimentations” (The Bluegrass Situation). Sedelmyer (Formerly of the Farewell Drifters) and Baiman (Formerly of Belfry Fellows) met in Nashville, and realized a mutual love for the range and depth of the 5-String fiddle. Only two years old as a band, the duo has already gained recognition and attention from some major festivals, landing slots at the ROMP festival in Owensboro, KY, the Strawberry Music Festival in Yosemite, CA, and a headlining slot at the 2014 Auckland Folk Festival in New Zealand. For this tour of the West Coast, they’re offering a double bill with the Tattletale Saints, whose album “How Red is the Blood” just won the New Zealand Music Award for Folk Album of the Year.

Tickets $15 adv/$17 at the door.
