Cathe Steele updated us about the very unique new venue, the Frog Pond at Blue Moon Farm. We already missed one Sunday Social with Grayson Capps, Will Kimbrough and Sugarcane Jane, which sounds like it would have been quite delightful. This Sunday’s gathering is Eric Erdman, Beverly Jo Scott and Sirius Plan at 3pm.
Blue Moon Farm is a very different kind of place than we are typically accustomed. Kind of in the vein of Levon Helm’s farm studio/small venue upstate New York. By reading the latest from Cathe Steele, it sounds like a must go place for music fans of all ages. Take note, reservations are required.
Here’s the rest of the update from Cathe:

WELCOME TO THE FROG POND AT BLUE MOON FARM HOUSE CONCERTS
It’s Sunday Social House Concert season at the Farm!!

Statement of Liability

Here at the farm we work very hard to bring everyone a safe place to enjoy, but being this is the great outdoors accidents such as (but not limited to) falls, bug bites, standing too close to a fire, walking into things and such, can happen.
By simply being on this property you agree to hold The Frog Pond, Blue Moon farm and it’s owners harmless and not liable for any injury sustained to you or someone under your care… If you do not agree with this policy we ask you to (carefully) enjoy the great musical outdoors elsewhere. ;o)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Fall is here and the heat is fading away into Fall days, slow but sure… I don’t know about y’all, but I’m ready for some great music, good friends, tasty food and the feel of a fire in the moonlight.

For those of you that have been to The Frog Pond at Blue Moon Farm, you know we’re referring to the stage and the community through music that is created in bringing friends and music lovers together in a true listening venue that is uncommonly magical on nights when the moon is full and the smell of Cedar rides on a song.

If you are new to the concept of house concerts, welcome to our family of friends! If you’re a new and upcoming guest to the farm, we hope your upcoming Frog Pond experience with private house concerts, community through music and the arts is a magical and memorable one for you. To acquaint you with what happens here at the farm, here’s a short list of the history & things to do and keep in mind before attending.. For those who’e been here, you already know what to expect.;o)

The Frog Pond began with a dream and an idea based on Levon Helm’s “Midnight Ramble”. My good friend Grayson Capps put his relatively large boot in my derriere to shove me into the dream I had to bring people together through music. Last year we built a stage made from recycle materials & filled it with magical musical friends ( “The Frog Pond”). Already songwriters and musicians alike are spreading the good word and our little stage, in just one year, has been host to Spencer Bohren, Randall Bramblett, Kinky Friedman, Malcolm Holcolm, David Olney, Sergio Webb, Webb Wilder, Drake White, Waylon and Jody Payne, Lisa Mills, Will Kimbrough, Anthony Crawford, and so many more!! It has become a place where musicians can ‘woodshed’ new material together, network and play with other artists they would normally never get to share their talents with while sharing those special times with a community of folks outside of a public venue, a place where listening is the norm and sharing the community of music, the arts and education becomes a venue for making new friends & sharing common interests. There are so many things in the world that tear us apart, music is something that brings us together.

The Frog Pond is a private house concert, on a private farm that is over 100 years old located just outside of Silverhill, Alabama. The stage sits under a 150 year old Cedar tree that faces the old house.. We are a member of the Folk Alliance, www.folkalliance.org/ and an RSVP is needed for all house concerts. Your newsletter here, is your invitation to the Fall/Winter/Spring House concert season here on the farm…Just email or message me though Facebook so I know your coming for each Sunday Social you plan to attend. ) We are not an open to the public venue and ‘walk-in’s’ are not allowed into the farm.;o) So, if you’re planning on attending any of the house concerts at the farm, you must make sure you’ve reserved a place on the guest list..Our capacity is limited and we want to keep our socials unique and intimate for all who come to share the fires, the music and the food . If you’d like to bring a guest with you, email me their names so I can add them to the guest list at the farm gate under your name as your “guest”. If you can give me their names and emails addresses, that’s even better.;o) If not, they can sign the email list once here should they want to be added to our address book.

The Frog Pond is an outside venue.. We have fires, wood stoves, outdoor heaters and outbuildings that are heated if it’s cold. The old farmhouse is heated as well.
Dressing for weather is important in keeping yourself comfortable.. We gather regardless of temperatures and unless it’s a monsoon, or nonstop rain, we cover up the stage areas and soldier on with the music and magic of the farm. Wear sensible shoes, (It’s a farm..lol) dress for the weather, bring an extra layer of clothing or blanket if you’re cold natured. Bring a chair if your inclined, a cooler with whatever you’d like to drink, and a dish of your choosing for the community table that’s set up in the old house. Dishes can be something you love to cook or prepare that you’d like to share with folks, or if you’ve no time, chips, cookies or sweets are welcome. Everything gets eaten, and some of the dishes that have been brought to share border on the incredible.. From smoked mullet, to Boudin, to some of the most awesome “Swamp” gumbo I’ve ever had, it has all been prepared with love and kindness for the Frog Pond community table..;o) Throw away containers are recommended.. I have serving utensils, cups, bowls, forks, napkins and paper plates here already. We recycle on the farm so keep in mind the recycle trash cans for aluminum can’s and plastic containers.. (If anyone knows where I can recycle glass, I’d love to know of somewhere locally..Maybe a beer bottle fence is in order with a few whiskey an wine bottles for good measure..)
