Scrag Mountain Music had its first event last night—a joyous and delicious kick-off party hosted at the Green Mountain Girls’ Farm in Northfield, also one of our venues for the series. We were pleased and encouraged by the turnout—the response to both our music and our vision continues to give us energy. We took the opportunity to try out an interactive element to the music in this event by discussing four seasonal poems that Evan and I were going to later perform. Then, the whole group shared memories that were evoked by these poems. When it was time to sing the songs, people were delighted to recognize the poetry and discovered personal connections to the music in ways that surprised them and us!
Last night was also a great opportunity to discuss our goals for the first season, including:
See you all at our first weekend of concerts—January 21-23. Bring your friends!
