"BRING FORTH YOUR NEW TUNES, SONGS & STORIES"


THE NEW TUNE SOCIETY has been formed in an attempt to widen the regional understanding of Celtic music genres & to foster new musical ideas through performance, presentation & study.
It is an informal, not-for profit group interetsted in Celtic/Folk music of the Atlantic Canada region, and Celtic world abroad. Membership in the Society is open to anyone interested in singing, playing, listening to, or learning more about Celtic music.

GOALS:
:: to encourage the writing of new tunes & songs, as well as creating a forum for teaching those tunes & songs to others;
:: to encourage the playing & arranging of older tunes & songs that may not be regulariy played at sessions or sung at song circles;


Four (4) presenters will be invited to each meeting (through the winter months). They will have 15-20 minutes to present or perform their works & ideas in a relaxed environment. This is not a performance, or session, or lecture, but rather a unique opportunity to share musical ideas with peers.

Membership includes:
:: a membership card
:: free admission to special events such as Seminars
:: opportunities to meet and share music & musical ideas with other music lovers.
($15.00 lifetime membership)

Please note: new members will receive their membership card at the next meeting (Oct, 2009).
