Calling on Retired Mums
Over the past few years
this site attracted numerous visitors who are active
in the string band community today, it has also
caught the attention of many “old timers.” We
maintain this site to preserve the history of our
hobby, as well as to document the 100+ years of
tradition that came before us. We would like
to encourage all the “old timers” who visit the site
to consider returning, in some capacity to the hobby
you loved. We know you’re out there. Why else
would you be here now?
You still have
something of value to give. Whether it’s
attending a fundraiser for your former organization,
giving free lessons to young members for an hour
before rehearsal each week, lending your expertise
to the theme committee, bringing your child, or even
grandchild, to a rehearsal, or simply sitting in
with the band once a month.
consider coming out of retirement, if not to take a
suit, then simply to show your support for this
hobby we all love. If you inspire even one
person to become committed to preserving this
tradition, you’ve made it worth your while.
Without gaining interest in and commitment to this
hobby from the next generation, there may not be
anything for us to archive 10 years from now.
us instill in the next generation the love of
mummery we all have in common on this site.
Stop by your old clubhouse next week, and tell them
