Newsletter Vol. 2 #2

Subject: Newsletter 2014 Vol. 2 No. 2

As I eluded to in our first Newsletter, we are very happy to announce the addition of bluegrass fiddler, Kathy White, to the Natchaug Trail Band. Kathy comes to us from Hatfield, MA where she has been raising her family over the years. Prior to that task, she worked with Adirondack Mountain Bluegrass, The Mountain Rose Band and other bluegrass bands in the Massachusetts area. Feeling that it was now time to get back into the music scene, Kathy has chosen the  Natchaug Trail band as her next endeavor. We are pleased that she did. If you see us out on the music trail somewhere, someday,  I hope you will say hello to Kathy and make her feel welcome. We are so happy to have her aboard and we have begun working intently to get our music ready for you.  Meantime……
