Banjos, dulcimers, apples, pumpkins, turkeys, snowdrops once in a blue moon news 

Happy autumn & winter holidays to friends, family & music lovers.   2019 has been a busy and wonderful year at the Cox house and I just realized that if I don’t write my “once in a blue moon” newsletter now—the year will be gone and the new year will totally take over 

Banjo Bluegrass, Blues & Beyond coming up.

 

  1. North Carolina Banjo Clinic November 7, 8, 9. 2019 Black mountain NC.

There is a whole line up of wonderful bluegrass & old time banjo instructors for a weekend of banjoing galore.   This is my first year teaching there & will be sharing tunes in 4 clawhammer workshops on Saturday November 9th.  The classes I’ll be leading are:

 

Song Study-Snowdrop in Open C, Easy Celtic Reels, Fiddle Tune Medleys for Dancing & Waltzing with Banjos

For all the details go to

 www.vpnews.org

Although I only have classes on Saturday—I will be there Friday & Saturday nights at large & could be available for individual lessons too. Contact me by email if you’d like to do that.  maryz@maryzcox.com 

There are a lot of really good banjoists going to be there so it’s bound to be fun. Hope to see you there!

 

  1. Banjo, Bluegrass, Blues & Beyond  November 23rd  @ New Posh

Jennifer & Brian Hill are going to join me at this wonderful log cabin listening room to play and sing some mountain music gone bluegrass and beyond.  We’ll be playing some tunes & songs from my new CD –Carolina Banjo as well as old-time and bluegrass favorites. Think Ralph Stanley & Doc Watson suddenly gone girly.  And did I mention that bad boy baritone banjo is gonna be there?   Debbie really makes this a home setting that is warm and personal and the audience & guests all get to know each other.

 

For more details & information contact Debbie Dix Bishop

                newposh3079@gmail.com  or (850) 528-5838 –there is also a Facebook page—but since it’s a home style concert—details usually go out by her email list.

 

 

  1.  Blue Tavern December 6th Tallahassee, FL   Banjo, Bluegrass Blues & Beyond –but 3 hours of it—Brian & Jennifer Hill join me again with even more mountain tunes and songs & surprises & fun.   There will be all kinds of fast and slow picking—new songs & old.  Think Doc Watson & Ralph Stanley & John Hartford picking clawhammer banjo & fiddle, guitar, mandolin, bass, baritone banjo & possibly more!  This is gonna be a really fun evening & hope to see you there. 

 

And that’s it for all the public performances for 2019—but please, please mark February 8th 2020 on your calendar for next year for a really totally surprising concert that will be a double header with some of your favorite international musicians combined with February birthdays & the secret mantra is “chocolate cake with fudge icing”.    I promise to let you know as soon as the tickets are on sale—because this may be the best concert ever in North Florida & I want all my friends and family & music buddies to be there.  

 

 

Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of the new Carolina Banjo recording & the Carolina Banjo Tab book.  All your kind words about this project have been so appreciated.  Thank you to everyone that has reviewed it & ran articles about it & played it on your radio station. And thank you for everyone who booked me live this year & all the folks who came out to hear the music & especially the wonderful musicians I got to play with this year.

 And it just warms my heart when you come up and introduce yourself because you know me by watching the “Good Morning Banjo “& “Good Morning Dulcimer” on my Facebook page.

 

 If you did not get a copy of Carolina Banjo or Carolina Banjo Tab Book yet—they can still be ordered from my website.

For Family

 All the kids are coming home for Thanksgiving so Bob & I are looking forward to that and a good visit with Sidney, Satoko, Natalie, Will & Gordon. 

 

Bob & I have sprung for a little Airstream Bambi 16 camper and we already towed it all the way to California & back for the Priceless Festival & we hope to camp a lot more places this year.

 

Elvis—our old basset hound is quite peppy & hasn’t died yet. He has a tumor on his aorta & they couldn’t take it off—so they sewed him back up & he is still running the show at the Cox house. 

 

Gordon has bought his own home in Tallahassee and is fast fixing it up—can’t wait to see it. 

 

A very merry pumpkin season (they are all over the place in the Carolina Mountains) & a happy & thankful Thanksgiving (with lots of turkey and I hope Joann makes that oyster dressing)

 

And may Santa bring you love & blessings for Christmas and whatever winter holidays you celebrate. And may the elves bring you new banjos, dulcimers, guitars, mandolins, basses or whatever your heart desires J

 

Thanks for your love and support,

Mary Z Cox

    These dump tracks are amazing. You guys have a real talent for this. I am pretty sure that there are record deals and artists lining up at your doorsteps to sign or collaborate with you. I wish I know how to make tracks like these ones. I have always had an affinity for making [URL=https://roblox-pc.io/]roblox[/URL] music but I really did not take the time and effort to master it and make it a career. I was always busy playing an intense game of [URL=https://among-us.io/]spaceship game to play[/URL] every single night.

    muse is one of the best groups and my friend suggests[url=https://www.justamericanjackets.com/product/daft-punk-electroma-leather-jacket/]Daft Punk Eletroma Leather Jacket[/url]. I'm not a major devotee of rock, but rather damn, this band is silly! This melody is unquestionably one of my top picks, yet I'm partial to practically the entirety of their tunes.

    Banjos can be the best thing to listen to when the musical is a master of its techniques. However, I am a musician too and I always search for a tune of foreign that can be optimized easily. To make this happen I use [url=https://www.onedollarwebhostings.com/hola-vpn-promo-code.html]Hola VPN Coupon Code[/url] that helped me to buy one of the best VPN to visit restricted sites.
