The New Orleans Strathspey & Reel Society Year in Review

The New Orleans Strathspey & Reel Society had a great 2011. Listed below you will see our biggest and best events of the past year. We want to thank everyone of our members and supporters for the hard work that they have put in to help make this such a successful year. We particularly thank those of you who put in the challenging technical and artistic work on our CD "Spirits of the Morning" which came out in April of this year. (Andy, Sharon & Karen, you know who you are.)
We also want to thank our patrons, the folks who ask us to come out and share our music with them. We are a small (but dedicated) group who compete with the wonderful and rich musical traditions of this region including jazz, zydeco and cajun music. With all of the world class competition, we truly appreciate those who support our efforts and share our love of traditional our Scottish and Irish tunes
We look forward to an exciting and fulfilling 2012. here's the list
