Round Robin Outreach at Hoag Library in Albion, May 2, 2015


RGC Guitarists at the Library

Saturday, May 2, at the Hoag Library in Albion was a great success in every way! In the spirit of May Day, the weather was ideal.  A congenial group of eight players from RGC convened in the library to play good music, converse with each other and with a small group of library patrons assembled to enjoy the music.

The cheerful, sunlit room was very conducive to interaction among players and audience. A variety of styles was played on a variety of guitars. A special treat for us was Rohan, a young man in attendance who was discernibly enthusiastic about our music. After completing our rounds, we invited him to play which he did to everyone’s delight.


Library Patron, Rohan Sorta

We were received warmly by the library staff and have tentative plans to return in October.  Many thanks to the library staff and to Jim Doyle, a founder of RGC and resident of Albion who helped make the event possible.
