RGC Round Robin at Tom Kelly's on January 19, 2015


John, Kinloch & Phil

A small but dedicated group of guitarists gathered in Tom Kelly’s home on Hawthorn Street this Monday for the monthly Guitar Club meeting. Tom’s elegant home was built in 1901, renovated throughout the twentieth century, and again into the present century by Tom and his wife, Diana when they refurbished the house extensively combining modern functionality with classic elegance. The Kellys, who also teach at Tango Cafe, operate a dance studio in their home. This room was an ideal venue for guitarists. We thank the Kellys for sharing with us their charming home with its many surprising features accumulated for more than a century. The home prompted interesting conversation about Rochester and its history in addition to the usual musical exchanges among guitarists.
