No, I’m not asking you to pony up some cash to get us by. However I am happy to announce that the Fabulous Fashionable Ferndale House Concert is kicking off this year’s events with Four Shillings Short, a great husband and wife acoustic duo. Four Shillings Short play a fantastic collection of world instruments: North Indian Sitar, hammered dulcimer, mandolins, Renaissance woodwinds, bouzouki , recorders, tinwhistles, banjo, percussion & psaltry.

Just a reminder about the show in Pontiac this Friday. For info see below. I know in my original note the other artist was going to be Barb Barton from Lansing, but they must have changed it, and it will be someone called Banjo Jim and Ricky. Which puts me in mind of two banjo jokes:
Question: How will we know that the stage is level on Friday?
Answer: Banjo Jim will be drooling out of both sides of his mouth.
Question: How will we be able to tell if Ricky has perfect pitch?
Answer: If he can toss the banjo into the dumpster from 20 yards out and hit Mark Iannace’s accordian. &
I’m looking forward to meeting Banjo Jim and Ricky and seeing you all there.
