Monday, October 11th, 2010

A number of folks passed a good time playing some Cajun music at Alber Orchard & Cider Mill this past Sunday, October 10.

Amazingly, the weather was near 80 degrees F, making us all feel we were playing down in Louisiana at this time of the year! When we were through playing, I made sure to stock up on some apple cider to take home. The orchard folks were kind enough to bring out some free cider for us musician types while we were playing, although it did attract a fair number of yellowjackets who were competing for our cider.

There are two more scheduled Cajun jam sessions at Alber’s in 2010, on October 24 and 31. Come on out and play along, or just come to listen. And don’t forget to go home with some cider, apples, and donuts.

Cajun jam at Alber’s Orchard

Friday, September 24th, 2010

Mark Palms of Creole du Nord likes to have a lot of Cajun jam sessions, and in the autumn he likes to have some of them at the Alber Orchard & Cider Mill out near Manchester, MI. The next jam is Sunday, September 26, noon to 3:00 pm. Unfortunately, Mark won’t be able to make it (nor will I), but y’all could have fun playing along (or even just listening). While you’re at it, Alber’s has some real fine cider, apples, and even donuts!

Alber’s is at 13011 Bethel Church Road, Manchester, MI. You can find them on Mapquest or any other online mapping service.

There are more Cajun jam sessions at Alber’s on October 3, 10, 24, & 31.
