Family lured Jerrianne and her husband to South Milwaukee in 2002 from Southern California where she worked as, first, a journalist, then, as a court information officer. She now stays busy with media-relations consulting, playing with her three grandchildren (part of the lure), writing, discovering her new environs, and hoping her garden will produce before the first fall frost.
While I was away frolicking in Jakarta, South Milwaukee's favorite Celtic music band, "The Garlic Mustard Pickers," has been busy. Last week, band member and lead fiddler, Bobbie Groth, sent the following notice:Come one, come all, to the last free music session from the Garlic Mustard Pickers at Fixx Coffee House in St. Francis on Monday, May 5th from 7-9 pm!
We've had a great spring of "First Monday of the Month" celtic music free concerts at Fixx. It's a popular place now, and the owner will be shutting down at 5 pm on Monday evenings from now on for some much needed rest!
SO....join us for our last evening of spring Monday concerts as we wind down the spring and jump into our summer performance schedule! (Look for us at "Evening on the Avenue", "Music in the Park" and other summer events--check our website at "TheGarlicMustardPickers.org")
Fixx is located at the very top end of Packard Avenue, about 1 block south of where Packard dumps into Lake Drive/Ohio St. just south of the Archdiocese. It is the building just north of Carleton Grange English pub. Fixx offers light fare--delicious Panini, soups, great sweets and of course stupendous coffee drinks.
C'mon down, have a treat, some chai, and tap your feet!
In June, mark Thursday June 12th on your calendar. We're performing in Grant Park (South Miilwaukee) at the Picnic Area #5 Pavilion. This is part of the Music in the Parks concert series, sponsored by Milwaukee County Parks. The music starts at 6:30. It's a great place for a picnic supper.
Thanks for supporting The Garlic Mustard Pickers!
