Home at last!
If you've ever lived in NYC, than you know it is always a thrill to top the hill on the road from La Guardia airport and see the old Gotham sky line rising over Greenwood Cemetery, and to know what joys, heartbreaks, and opportunities await you there. Looking back over the last weeks on the road, there were plenty of fun concerts with my harp buddy, and musical pal, Martha Waldvogel-Warren.
Marti arranged for a couple of fun gigs in Michigan, and I set up a concert in Lafaytette, Indiana. The concert at Third Reformed Church in Holland, MI was a highlight: the audience was cheerful and really receptive to the music. We managed to get a pretty good video of that concert, so watch this blog for a posting of it. Saturday last, we drove down to Indiana where my friend (and Tippecanoe Ancient Fife and Drum Corps Director) Malcolm Duncan put on an excellent pickin' party for Marti and I in his barn in Battleground, IN. Singer, Steve Stump regaled all assembled with his great songs, whistlers Steph and Malcolm chimed in and Marti and I did our best to add to the general air of jollification! Thanks to Malcolm for the great time!
Sunday afternoon, Dick Nagel hosted Marti and I for a house concert at the Loeb House Inn in Lafayette to a fun capacity crown and folks seemed to really enjoy the music as well. Look for photos and such of the events here soon.
