Be A Part of TKMA as We Are Creating New Opportunities!
SPECIAL THANKS to all who came out to the TKMA: THE NEXT GENERATION – A SUMMER CELEBRATION FUNDRAISER to celebrate our up-and-coming young Tucson Folk Festival performers at Monterey Court last Sunday, supporting next year’s festival! Hot Club Jr, Roman Barten-Sherman, Sophia Rankin Trio and Elizabeth Tighe & Friends did not disappoint! Each shared their unique sound and talents and the crowd loved them! And, how cool to have one of Tucson’s Treasures, Kevin Pakulis, open the evening for us all. Thank you, Kevin and Band, for your generosity of gift, music and spirit!
FROM THE KITCHEN CORNER:
Your Opportunity To Get Your Questions Answered!
Question: “I’ve been unable to find anywhere where musicians themselves can still get together in the manner in which the organization was founded. Is there still a way for “kitchen musicians” to connect and jam, or has that been replaced by the society now being for the production of a festival?”
Response: ” GREAT QUESTION! I am happy you are looking for an opportunity to get together with other musicians who just want to jam! On our website under GET INVOLVED is information on a new activity we started in 2017! Ted Ramirez, TKMA Board Member & Membership Co-Coordinator, initiated and started a new opportunity for TKMA members to get together just for the reason you are looking for – a Monthly Song Circle! With the Festival in May, and summertime upon us, the next song circle will be after summer. (Non-members are welcome, but members participate in the Song Circle!) Here’s a link about the most recent Song Circle held last April: CLICK HERE
