Come See The Onlies Play Live on Vashon
This winter my Spanish 3 classes and I got to work with poet, magician, and translator, Tom Pruiksma, our Vashon Artist in Residence. He will be premiering a new magic and poetry show on Sunday, March 23, but on, Sunday. March 9, at 2 p.m. you can see The Onlies!
The ONLIES play original and traditional fiddling tunes with Celtic, old-time, and Canadian roots. They are three talented Garfield High School sophomores who have been playing together since they were toddlers. They have just released a CD, "Setting Out to Sea," and have toured extensively throughout the West Coast.
Tickets are available at brownpapertickets.com or at the door. $15 per family; $10 individual; NO ONE TURNED AWAY FOR LACK OF FUNDS! (This will be true for Tom's magic show on Sunday, March 23 as well.)
This event is a fundraiser for RISK and RISK jr., which both provide music instruction in the community and at Chautauqua Elementary at low to no cost.

C’est La Vie—> Vivir Mi Vida
Escuchen--Pablito V. me mandó esta canción que forma la base de Vivir Mi Vida. Phil dice:
"Vivir mi Vida" was originally "C'est la vie", a bilingual song, with Algerian Arabic verses and a French refrain, sung by Algerian singer Khaled! Marc Anthony adapted the lyrics and, somewhat, the background beat to be more like salsa. Here's the original:
Muchas gracias por la información, Pablito!
Estamos aprendiendo y cantando una nueva canción:
