The end of the year calls for introspection - what's going on right in the Level 4 class, what could be better and should we even consider a name change to something like "Blues Harmonica Repertoire and Performance"? Joe is open to feedback from you all, so if you have thoughts, shoot him or YMM an email.
And on an individual level, remember that Joe is always eager to hear from you about your personal goals. What do you need from class? What are you working on? He can only help you improve if he knows what you want to be doing better, so let him know!
- The CD contest is over! Joe collected a lot of submissions and will be listening to them over break. Congrats to all who made the effort and grew through making a record of your songs this year.
- The new Old Town session starts January 6 - register now if you haven't already.
- The editorial staff will take a holiday break - no newsletter between Dec 19 and Jan 6. Focus on your playing and practicing but keep an eye on the gig calendar and support the local musicians during our time off!
The Primich family continues to reach out and take good care of B1. This year they sent along copies of the Gary Primich recent release, Just A Little Bit More as well as copies of the disc they produced for Hank Mowery, Account To Me. We're honored and will enjoy listening to our holiday gifts from the Primich family - THANK YOU!
- Grant Kessler, B1 Blues Crew
