Wizards, weavers and fiddlers at First Friday

S o … it turns out that Paul Klam isn’t from Brooklyn as I last wrote. He insists on it, actually, despite the fact that he spent a whole lot of time and wood carving the Brooklyn Dodgers. Seems suspicious to me. But he says he was Manhattan born and bred. That’s his story and he’s sticking to it. But Manhattan’s loss is Granville’s gain. He’s all Granville’s now. And no wooden Dodgers this time, he tells me. Paul’s First Friday display will be filled with magic! Wizards and dragons, he tells me. All you Harry Potter fans out there have been put on notice.

And do you like fiddle music? I do and I have to admit that since the very first time we planned a First Friday, I was looking for fiddle players to make music for the evening. And it only took me two years!

Dave Lawlor will be fiddling around at First Friday next week. And of course I won’t be around for it. Taking off for points west again to take care of family. But the magic sounds of bluegrass and fiddle will make it a special evening.

And continuing with the magic theme, the Foothill Treadlers, will be spinning their wares for you to enjoy and perhaps buy. It’s never too early to start holiday shopping and the Treadlers assure me that make lots of things to choose from.

Caroline Kibbe’s paintings will round out the show for the night and, if you get hungry you can check out the goodies from the Slate Valley Coop.

Good food, good music and fine art, as always. First Friday starts at 7 p.m. and goes to 9.
