Default Back to Practices?

Is your band back to practices, yet? If so, what's the atmosphere like? Masks (as best as can be) being worn? Distancing going on? How surreal is it? (Or not?).

We're still not back to sessions, though we've actually been talking about having a party first. That, too, might be surreal (although welcomed).

Default Re: Back to Practices?

After a couple months of Zoom practices, which I thought were very successful, we had our first in-person practice last weekend.

We did pads and chanters in a big circle to maintain the required 6 foot distance. Masks except when blowing the chanters!

It was great to see everyone, and hear the music whole again.
