From Your Membership Guys!

Dear TKMA Members:
We finally have an indoor venue to hold a few our TKMA Song Circles!
Raices Taller Gallery (Roots Workshop Gallery) is a local art gallery located near downtown Tucson (the address is listed below). They are a non-profit artist operated art gallery – they have been around a long time.
They have graciously welcomed our song circle to their gallery. Please know, we will continue to hold our song circles at the wonderful “Tucson Presidio” and “Monterey Court” when possible and our schedules match up, but the gallery offers a great option and another opportunity to integrate TKMA into the local artist community.
On Sunday, February 4th between 2 and 5pm – we will hold a Song Circle at the gallery. We are aware it is Super Bowl Sunday, but we will go forward with this – to get the ball rolling. If you can make it – we will be there playing tunes, enjoying good company and snacks!
If you are a TKMA member in good standing – you are welcome to attend at no cost. The general public may attend with a small donation to the gallery and to TKMA – new memberships are available and welcomed at this event. If you have been wanting to join TKMA, come on down, sign up and play, or listen to the music.
We will feature a special guest artist (TBA) and include all TKMA members in attendance to our “Traveling Song Circle Stage”. Please bring your voices and instruments and let’s play some music!
