The first NFH was a huge success;, thanks to you for coming and singing and playing! We had 20 families, which is our goal number, at First Churches in the parlor room. Highlights for me were having Caleb play fiddle, Chris Haynes play accordion, Ben Demerath’s mandolin, the kids dancing with dance wands, and the way you all nailed the 4-part harmony on “All My Trials.”
Going forward, here’s what we’ve decided:
There will be a monthly NFH until June. Dates for the fall are
We’ll announce 2014 dates in December.
There will be two ways of coming to NFH. The first is the subscription: you pay ahead of time for a season (in this case, Oct., Nov. and Dec) and you are guaranteed a spot in the room. If we don’t sell 20 subscriptions, there will be space available for drop ins. Also, the books we’ve made were much more expensive than we’d anticipated. We’re going to offer them to anyone at a cost of $15 apiece, but we hope to have extras available, so that if you don’t want to buy one to take home, you can probably find one at class time.
Subscription: $25 x 3= $75
Drop in: $30
Requests? We are still working on the book, so if you have requests, now is the time to give them to us!
To secure your spot, send a check to The Nields at 415 Prospect Street Northampton MA 01060.
We love this community! Thanks for coming, families. Can’t wait to make more music with you all!
Love, Nerissa and Katryna
