“Live at Lori’s Indoor Guitar Pull”, Feb 2, Mar 2, CANCELLED

CANCELLED March 2 and the rest, (Sun Feb 2, 2014, from 4 pm to 8-ish pm, pwyc.) Singer-songwriter Lori Yates has cancelled her plans for hosting a monthly Guitar Pull at Artword Artbar. It was fun while it lasted.
Lori explains it all: “This is a continuation of the fabulous ‘Live at Lori’s’ backyard guitar pulls from the summer but this is the indoor version. The ‘guitar pull’ is a tradition that comes from country music. Musicians sit around and take turns playing their songs. Some say “guitar pull” refers to the passing of a single guitar around, everyone taking their turns. Not everyone owned a guitar or instrument but everyone had a song to sing. People “took a turn” in the sense of “pulling” the guitar from someone’s hands so they could get their song out. Musicians playing on a stage for an audience is usually how music is presented — musicians on one side and the audience seated in rows on the other. The guitar pull has a different shape. The musicians and the audience aren’t separate, they aren’t even that different. Imagine a circle— a presentation to each other. No one’s trying to create the definitive version of a song that will go on to sell millions of copies (but hey if you’ve got one of those, thats great!). The songwriters, accompanied by some deft musicians are just playing original songs for each other, and everyone joins in as they feel. Its a chance for the songwriters to try out their new tunes, play some of their older songs, and connect with other writers and players.”
