The Johnny Possum Band is on the hunt for a female singer to remake our ranks since our guitarist departed. Ideally we want a strong mid to low range voice with character and familiar with 2/3 part harmonies. If you have no formal singing training then this could be a plus as these songs suit a little roughness.
The singing is shared around so would be good if you also have some skills on a stringed instrument of some kind to keep you busy.
For info on the band: www.johnnypossum.com
Or email me

We are looking for another lady to join our all-girl country/Irish/bluegrass band. A mandolin-playing vocalist would be ideal. However, if you sing and play another instrument that might fit our Dixie Chicks style sound , please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Mimi-jean of email@example.com is looking for a banjo teacher for her brother and herself and was wondering if you know of anyone who could teach them? They have never played before but have played other instruments.
Please email as above!
I stumbled across your website and read a very similar advert to the one I wanted to place!
I too would like to find a tutor who could teach my daughter to play the banjo. She plays other instruments, but I am struggling to find a tutor.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Unique photos of Grace, the Fiddle & friends, on location in gardens, parks & unlikely places. Capturing the 'essence' of the different styles of music & escapades of a Fiddle.
Created into greeting cards, posters, block & canvas prints & 2013 Calendar. Great gifts for musicians, lovers of nature & those with Celtic connections.
Global Voices, a four-part choir of about 30 members, needs more tenors and basses to fill the gaps left by some recent departures. We meet on a Wednesday evening in Opawa, and our repertoire is a capella world song. You can see and hear more on our website, www.globalvoices.org.nz, and phone Jenny 382 4982 or John 021 1157344 to see about coming along to try us out.
I'd like to get more live music at my regular monthly contra dances, and hope to attract your interest. In the USA where contra dancing is thriving, it is almost always done to live music. There are a wide range of musical styles that suit.
Please let me know if you are interested and I can keep in contact.
Would you like to challenge yourself a bit? Need to keep polished, so you don't get stage fright in front of an audience? No prior musical knowledge required, but a love of Folk and ability to share your appreciation of the fine gift the artists have would be helpful.
Please talk to Sarah or Dave Hart for more details.
Dances start March 6. 7:30 to 10:30 pm at the Addington School Hall. No Partners Needed! All Dances Taught! Easy and Lots of Fun! First timers welcome! Please bring a supper plate to share. Only $5. Musicians play for one dance and get in free! Call a dance, get in free!
