MEMBER SPOTLIGHT Sing Around - Leader Bill Chandler
Whenever there are 5 Tuesdays in a month, Golden Link does something a little different from the normal sing around on the 5th Tuesday. For this sing around, we'll be spotlighting three of our members or groups by giving them each a 15-minute mini concert at the start of the sing around.
Since we can’t meet in person right now, Golden Link is hosting virtual sing-arounds on Zoom. For details on how to use Zoom, how to join, and how to participate, Click Here
Enjoy the music, and stick around for the rest of the sing around which will proceed as normal!
September's Spotlight Performers are:
Dan and Maureen Kuchta of Dusty Road
Long time members of Golden Link, Dan & Maureen are often seen at the Golden Link virtual sing arounds, and have been performing locally with their group, Dusty Road. While the pandemic has put the skids on practicing or performing as a group, they still enjoy playing as a duo and will share their mix of Americana and Folk songs, with Dan on Guitar and vocals, and Maureen playing Clarinet, Saxophone, and Recorders.
Laurie Hunt and Laurence Sugarman
The Sugarman's have been making beautiful music separately and together for a long, long time. Laurie, a lifelong Rochesterian, fools around on the hammered dulcimer, ukulele, and bass. She performed with the Passing Fancies, the Wakefield Dancers, the Wet Dog String Band (where she and Laurence met) and various other groups. Inspired by Pete Seeger, Laurence started playing old-time banjo as a boy growing up in Northeast Ohio. For a decade Laurence was involved in various musical groups in Missouri where he first took up the fiddle. Influenced by Ozark, Cajun, and Country Swing, he was a member of the St. Louis-based Original Mound City String Band that took first place in the Tennessee State Fiddling Championship in the mid 1970s. Laurie and Laurence began their musical and romantic collaboration 20 years ago. Between the two of them they have produced four records of new and old music. They bring technical precision to heartfelt melodies to keep recreating new traditional music together.
A dozen years ago, Mike began learning how to play guitar, fulfilling a 2008 New Year’s resolution. After acquiring callouses & realizing that he crazily enjoyed practice, he bought a (used) Taylor 810 acoustic guitar and asked the seller where one could learn to sing & play with others. Answer: “Golden Link!” One of Mike’s resolutions for 2020 was to improve his live performance confidence by playing at 52 Open Mics during the year. By March 2020, of course, that resolution was out of the running! He has since substituted participation in musical Zoom events. Mike says, “Thanks, Golden Link, for helping me become better at something I’ve wanted to do my whole life, & for an improved awareness of our folk music heritage!”
