The incomparable Madge Dietrich celebrated a birthday this past weekend. How can one be so lucky to call you a friend Madge, and to make sweet music with you all these many years!? Here's a little ditty from our Billy Joel gig this past July at Summer at Sem Creative Arts, Kirby Center for the Creative Arts.
I recently had the great honor and pleasure of performing alongside my music department colleagues at Emory & Henry College in our new digs, the McGlothlin Center for the Arts. It was a thrill, to say the least.
The performance, entitled Coming Home, featured the brilliant Dr. Lisa Withers, Dr. Matt Frederick, Dr. Allyss Haecker and yours truly. A friend was kind enough to capture some bootleg recordings which I'm happy to share here.
It was particularly moving getting to be behind the keys again, singing and playing (a place I feel truly at home). Much love and many thanks to the brilliant Bob Ballengee for his accompanying me on percussion.
They are bootlegs after all, so don't mind the quality, just (hopefully) enjoy.
