The Seabright Serenaders just finished a wonderful run of fourteen weddings, along with anniversary parties, and several dances and concerts between June and October. We spent a week at the notorious Festival of American Fiddle Tunes in Port Townsend, Washington, where Paul taught guitar and mandolin.
We continue to play every Tuesday Night, 7-9:30, at La Posta at 538 Seabright Avenue in Santa Cruz. You can find us Sunday mornings, 10-noon, in various aggregations of musical cohorts at the Buttery Bakery & Café, 702 Soquel Avenue in Santa Cruz.
We play regularly for the Santa Cruz County Farmer’s Markets, most often at the Westside, Scotts Valley and Felton locations. From December through April Paul will be at the Westside market every Saturday morning playing a wide variety of musical traditions.
Here are two youtube videos of The Seabright Serenaders playing at the Berkeley Old-time Music Festival in September, 2013.
October 21 we were happy to join everyone at Bookshop Santa Cruz in celebrating the release of Geoffrey Dunn’s new book, Santa Cruz is in the Heart - Volume 2, providing traditional Italian tunes for the book signing.
We will be playing Friday, November 1 at Café Iveta, 2125 Delaware Santa Cruz, from 7-9pm to celebrate the opening of our friend Tom Bottoms’ painting exhibit. His recent series are landscapes and interiors from his stay in Venice, Italy in 2012. All are welcome.
Holiday parties are already coming in, so if you would like to hire us for your holiday event, please contact us soon.
Tuesday Nights, our first CD, has sold well this year – so we are working on a second recording. We will be joined by our sons Rafael and Benny, and our close associates Irene Herrmann and Janet Dows. We aim for a release by mid-December, 2013.
