Dick Weissman has had a long and distinguished career as a composer and songwriter, with many recorded instrumental pieces and songs. He is especially noted as a unique banjo player who integrates traditional music styles like bluegrass and clawhammer playing into new compositions that include everything from blues to jazz and world music. A current review of
his latest CD in Bluegrass Unlimited says that: "If you enjoy banjo, then you'll love Weissman's surprising arrangements." Dick also plays guitar in a variety of styles, and a mandolin-like instrument called the octaphone.
Every Monday evening the Fresh City Lounge is open for freestyle stitchers to come in and enjoy the company of other knitters.
We also accept walk-in students who'd like to learn how to knit or crochet. Our teacher will host up to six beginning students in either discipline, first-come, first-served. No materials or tools or registration needed for this introductory workshop and students are welcome to return on successive Monday nights until they are 'freestyling,' too!
