Needle Felting Workshop

Needle Felting Workshop

Wednesday, April 24th
5:30pm to 8pm

At a Rover Studios Needle Felting Workshop, you will learn the basics of using hand felting needles to turn carded wool (Roving) into soft sculptures. Projects can include anything from realistic pet portraits to soft handmade toys to imaginative whimsical creations made completely by hand and in the company of a creative and convivial crowd.

In needle felting, wool is compressed and shaped by jabbing a barbed needle into a ball or mat of wool the tangle and link the fibers. The process is surprisingly soothing and the results are routinely charming!

All the tools and materials will be provided for the initial $25 fee. Returning crafters, Frequent Felters, fee is $20 for materials and the space.

Tools are sharp and 3D projects are most appropriate for 14 and up. If you want to include a younger crafter let me know and an suitable 2D project can be included.

April’s workshop will focus on posable 3D creations with wire armatures inside, but simpler project can always be arranged Workshop leader, Xan, comes from a long line of fiber artists.

Live Music :: Dan & Christy Foster

Saturday, May 11th
6pm to 8pm

Christy and Dan play old-time, country, bluegrass and hillbilly music for those music lovers who enjoy old sentimental songs, new sentimental songs, snappy rags, crooked breakdowns, or hard-driving, claw-hammered dance-tunes.

Christy Palumbo Foster, vocals, finger-style guitar and banjulele (banjo-ukulele):
Originally from St. Louis, MO, long time Austin guitarist/vocalist has been performing since participating in an open mic at an Austin Friends of Traditional Music meeting at the Split Rail, in 1976.. Vocal influences range from 1920s jazz stylings, to hot swing of Fats Waller, Ella Fitzgerald, and full circle back to the old songs of Appalachia and early country and bluegrass. She also is pleased and honored to include the original songs of local songwriters, John Clay and Dan Foster in the Plowboys repertoire. Christy has performed Dixieland, big band and in her own jazz quintet (Jazz Me Blues in the late70s), and in an all women old-time band (The Decibelles, 1990s). Christy Palumbo Foster and Dan Foster appear on Rounder Records compilation, the American Fogies, Vol. 1 : Various Artists (CD, 1996). Christy also performs regularly with the Austin Balkan Singers and the Austin Banjo Club.

Dan Foster, fiddle, banjo, mandolin and vocals:
Dan has been around the Austin music scene since the mid-70s. A native Texan with roots in North Carolina, he has been fascinated with traditional music since the age of 14 when he first saw the great Texas bluesman, Mance Lipscomb. Playing the fiddle, mandolin, banjo, and guitar, Dan is known for seeking out the unique and unusual from the hidden treasury of American music and delivering both instrumental and vocal renditions true to style. From the Kentucky long-bow of Buddy Thomas and J.P. Fraley to the rollicking Georgia fiddle tunes of Gid Tanner and the Skillet Lickers, Dan’s love of southern fiddling is genuine. But novelty rags on the mandolin and new-made songs for claw-hammer banjo are also in store, along with sentimental southern harmonies when he joins Christy to sing their favorites from long ago. You should come and listen while they sing old songs new to the ear and new songs old beyond their years.

Check out Christy's band, Christy and the Plowboys:

Live Music :: Chaski

Saturday, May 12th
6pm to 8pm

Chaski performs a variety of Latin American folk music and is especially known for music of the Andes. Chaski has been performing for more than 30 years in Austin and around the world.

Chaski [CHAH-ski] means “messenger” in the Incan language of Quechua [KECH-wah]. In the spirit of this Andean traveler, Chaski brings to its audiences classical, Celtic, and Latin American folk music featuring all kinds of flutes and harps. Based in Austin, Texas, Chaski has performed together since 1985 and has toured the United States, Costa Rica, Venezuela, England, and Scotland. Five independently produced recordings, Chaski (1989), Pacha Mama (1991), El sariri (1995), Unay (2000), and Viracocha (2005) feature selections from Chaski’s repertoire on flute, sikus (panpipes), quena, flauto traverso, harp, cuatro, guitar, charango, bombo, maracas and other instruments. Chaski was featured on the soundtrack of 2006 IMAX film Ride Around the World: A Cowboy Adventure

Chaski began performing classical flute and harp music in April of 1985. Venezuelan songs that Adrienne’s mother had brought from her homeland gradually made their way into Chaski’s repertoire. Shana and Adrienne joined the University of Texas at Austin Brazilian and Andean Music Ensembles to learn more about depth and variety of Latin American music. The success of their expanded repertoire led them to welcome guitarist Dan Dickey into the group in about 1991.

WOOT TALLEY 

I have been playing music for most of my life and the road to this CD was a winding journey but with some clear markers. Sometimes stories start at the beginning but this one starts on the back end of the middle. 

The first step occurred in 2001 when I found one of John Lennon’s acoustic guitars. Actually, I didn’t find the guitar; it was a gift from by beautiful wife Tammy and Barbara -- best mom-in law a man could have. And to be completely honest it isn’t technically “one of John Lennon’s guitars.” It’s an Epiphone EJ-160 John Lennon Signature model.  A guy can dream can’t he? 

My John Lennon guitar sounded great. My buddy Dave at Guitar Resurrection set it up. I loved the action and the feel of the neck.  I had played bass, keyboards and some electric guitar in bands for over 25 years but this was a new jumping off point. This was my first acoustic guitar and learning to finger-pick was a bit like traveling to Mars.... I was starting from scratch.

So I searched out artists that I admired to learn songs. I was drawn to the work of Robert Johnson, Muddy Water, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Big Bill Broonzey, Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, James Taylor, Keb Mo, Steve Earle and obviously John Lennon.  I begged, borrowed and nicked as many licks as I could handle.

The next catalyst to my odyssey was when my daughter Kate was born in 2006. The addition of a beautiful new baby girl to our family brought on a natural shift of priorities. I was a new dad again. I was home more which had an added bonus -- I started playing my acoustic guitar more, writing songs and actually finishing them. When Kate was very young I would take the guitar into the bathroom for her tub time. While she played with her little tub toys, we had BIG fun. We sang songs, made up songs, and I would sneak in little ideas I was working on and write.  Half of the songs on the CD were written or created during this period. Having Kate on the cover of the CD was natural. She was my muse and song-writing partner. The time together with her allowed me the opportunity to create these songs.

The last piece of the journey was to start playing these songs out in public and the reconnecting with friends. Austin isn’t a bad place to do that. Without using a worn out slogan it is true that you can't go two hundred yards in any direction without running into a music venue.   So I went out and found a gig. My first gig as a solo was at the Thunderbird coffeehouse in November 2010. I played anywhere they would let me. One night I was playing Genuine Joe’s on Anderson Lane and an old band mate from my Rabbit days (that is a different story – it is at the end of the beginning) walked in. Bruce and I have known each other since high school. We also logged 9 years on the road with that Rabbit thing and are still good friends today.  Anyway, Bruce was itching to play guitar again so I invited him to join my party of 1.  Now we’re a duo, we play more gigs and eventually add Win on bass and finally David on the drums. Over the last 4 years we have built this thing up, even rehearsed a few times, and have become a real band. 

The last leg on this trip was linking up with Phil Mezzetti -- producer and recording engineer extraordinaire.  Phil did some time on the road with Rabbit in the early 80’s (there’s that Rabbit thing again) but now he owns his own recording studio. We begged him to help us make this record and in between floods and near death experiences he relented and went way above the call of duty and put real sweat and heart in this record. Thanks Phil.

John Lennon guitar. Beautiful daughter Kate and tub time. Reconnecting with friends. These are the steps on my path that brought you this CD. Hope you enjoy it – there are pieces of my life in this music.

Originally from NYC, John Guinan has found a home in the the Boston music scene and community.  In the words of a musician friend recently, "John is a true devotee to the guitar and to songwriting storytelling. He always credits his influences, - Richard Shindell, Ellis Paul, and Dan Bern, for example, but his originals are full of sweet grit and urban nostalgia that feels really familiar, and that personalizes his cover renditions as well."

John is very active on the open mic scene in Boston and Metrowest and also hosts open mics in the area.

Dan Foster, fiddle, banjo, mandolin and vocals:
Dan has been around the Austin music scene since the mid-70s. A native Texan with roots in North Carolina, he has been fascinated with traditional music since the age of 14 when he first saw the great Texas bluesman, Mance Lipscomb. Playing the fiddle, mandolin, banjo, and guitar, Dan is known for seeking out the unique and unusual from the hidden treasury of American music and delivering both instrumental and vocal renditions true to style. From the Kentucky long-bow of Buddy Thomas and J.P. Fraley to the rollicking Georgia fiddle tunes of Gid Tanner and the Skillet Lickers, Dan’s love of southern fiddling is genuine. But novelty rags on the mandolin and new-made songs for claw-hammer banjo are also in store, along with sentimental southern harmonies when he joins Christy to sing their favorites from long ago. You should come and listen while they sing old songs new to the ear and new songs old beyond their years.

Brunch Music :: Charlotte Morris

Saturday, April 13th
10am to Noon

Charlotte Morris is a New York based singer-songwriter whose music showcases a unique blend of folk, pop and rock music. From her lilting folk ballads to her rock anthems for a new generation, Charlotte displays a wide aptitude for various styles. Charlotte draws inspiration from many of her favorite artists including Delta Rae, Brandi Carlile, Christina Perri and folk legends like Peter, Paul and Mary and Simon & Garfunkel. Her songs, which are mostly auto-biographical, also reflect her years in the theatre, with nuances and lyrical specificity akin to musical theatre writing. Described as “the love-child of Judy Collins, deftly playing her violin, guitar and our heartstrings”, Charlotte’s music and charming on-stage presence leave audience members wanting more.

Charlotte released her debut EP 'To New York, with love’ in June 2018, which received recognition from newspapers and music blogs worldwide. Songs from the EP have been added to numerous Spotify playlists and ‘Call Me Baby’, the 2nd track, has now been featured on MusicTo for 9 consecutive months. Charlotte plays shows in NYC frequently, with recent venues including Feinstein’s/54 Below, Rockwood Music Hall, Parkside Lounge and more. She released her latest single, Shine on February 20, 2019 - World Day of Social Justice.

Charlotte is originally from outside of Philadelphia, and still spends quite a bit of time there, both performing and relaxing with family.

When not writing and releasing music, Charlotte can be seen performing in theatrical productions across the country (coming up - Once at The Public Theatre of San Antonio), playing with dogs and eating cheese.
