MICHELLE STEUERMANN

New Board Member!

I was introduced to bluegrass in 2006 and have since fallen completely under its spell, thanks to Harry Timmons and all the wonderful folks I've met along the way. I play guitar and attempt to play mandolin. Vocals are my strong point, if I can remember the lyrics!! And no, I don't play ukulele...

Harry Timmons adds: "helped spearhead the monthly bluegrass jam on Maui known as Pickin' with Chickens, is vocalist and rhythm guitar in the band Sand Hill, and produces awesome coffee, eggs and other goodies on her 'way off the grid' farm in upcountry Maui."

BLUEGRASS HAWAII MONTHLY JAM

Manoa Valley District Park, 2721 Kaaipu Ave, Honolulu, HI 96822
Sunday July 19, 2015, 1 - 5 pm

For our July Monthly Jam, please come and join us at Manoa Valley District Park in Honolulu. The park is conveniently located in Manoa Valley and is a gorgeous spot, surrounded by high mountain ridges and gifted with huge rainbows that span the entire sky nearly every afternoon. High mountains surround you and emerald green grass stretches out before you. Many trees provide shady spots and we will have our pop up tents for more shade. The bathrooms are well kept, and there is parking, but it does seem to be a bit busy on weekends, so come early.

Our apologies for the directions to the crowded part of the park at the last jam! We will be at the Kahaloa entrance, which is a left turn off of East Manoa Road. Do not turn down Lowrey Avenue.

DATE: SUNDAY, July 19, 2015

TIME/LOCATION: Manoa Valley District Park, 2721 Kaaipu Ave, Honolulu, HI 96822

BRING: Traditional instruments, chairs or blanket, cooler, snacks, drinks and a POTLUCK TO share ... and your tapping feet and dancing shoes too!

DIRECTIONS: Exit the H1 Freeway at University Ave. Head north toward the mountains. Stay on University Avenue as it goes uphill and then downhill. Then turn right on E. Manoa Rd. Go through Manoa town and then turn left on Kahaloa Ave. We will be on the left side under the trees.
