    In Cambridge June through August every year, except when my wife has a sabbatical. She teaches at Colby College in Central Maine, so -- sigh -- we spend September through May up there.

    Flatlander in Vermont!

    Oh Hey - me and the missus are Mass****s up here in the Green Mountain State. Been here going on eight years and we will always be "flatlanders"!

    I hear ya- "washashore" on the Cape- that's where my mother-in-law has been for about 15 years- still a mere Washashore...

    From Salem, myself- No-ath Sho-wa!

    RI is wonderful.

    Barrington to Newport is West Cape Cod.

    The rest of the state is Southern Central Mass.

    CT on the other hand... no dice on joining the Union :D

    CT- New England OR NY???

    Yesssss. Dated a girl from Fairfield, CT- She always claimed to be a New Englander, then supported the NY football Giants, and the Yankees….the YANKEES????:rolleyes:

    Connecticut is just a vast suburb of NYC until you get north of Hartford…

    We have a lot of Yankee fans here in VT as well- Oh Well, I guess some folks just like to take the easy way out!:)

    So true! I went to the University of Hartford and experienced this firsthand as well. It's amazing how Hartford is the dividing line between southern New England vs "Wish We Were Westchester County 2". My guess is you root for the team that plays in the closer stadium... or a lot of NYers decided they liked having a lawn and settled in CT.

    Hey W Massers, Northern CTers and Souther VTers. Trying to find some decent venues that support original music. I've been playing the area for 20+ years and original venues seem to be dwindling. Most of the bars (which are not necessarily our scene) want top 40 covers/country and we are just not into doing that (Did the cover thing years ago all around NE.) We've found some supportive coffee houses and breweries, but are looking for more. Any suggestions??? Thanks.

    Hey, Chicken Yard!
    Don't know how far your "Willin'" to travel, but I live next to Stowe, VT- only about 3.5- 4hrs from Springfield. This town is a four season world class resort destination and the Mountain Road has a number of clubs/restaurants brewpubs etc that would probably fit your bill- worth a weekend trip with your band to chill and check it out
    ❄️⛳️⛺️⛵️

    It's all here! You may only cover gas money playing, but it would be a fun weekend- not like playing Pittsfield.

    Inexperienced poster here. My previous post was supposed to be a reply to TeleHawg.

    Anyway, now that my kids have graduated I have more time on my hands to finally learn to play my telecasters (2). So I wanted to reach out to the Mass-h-o-l-e-s for tips, suggestions, etc for good teachers from Boston to the south shore that I should reach out to for some lessons.
    Thanks

    I second this - in a few months is like to start taking lessons after I get myself back in playing shape. Anyone have any teacher suggestions south of Boston?
