I’m pretty sure every age group was in attendance - kids, teens, young adults, adults and seniors. They played piano, guitar, ukulele, and harmonica and listened to songs, a recording and a reading. It was a relaxed atmosphere and most people obviously knew each other. Don’t let that scare you away though, because they were clearly happy to see new audience members and participants. Paul, who normally listens to them while playing darts and pool at the Legion, decided to participate for the first time with lots of encouragement and appreciation.
An idea of what the evening was about…..
“The Rose”, one of my favorite songs, was sung so beautifully. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxSTzSEiZ2c .
Ian Graham tweaked Stan Rogers’ song `45 years’ and sang it for his wife Sharon as a Valentine surprise and because they will celebrate their 45th anniversary in June. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrGDoDloD1M
An obviously talented piano player gave us a treat.
A story was read about the environment. Sounds serious? Yes, it does and although the topic was serious, the writing was light.
This event is held in the Legion and people were able to drink something while enjoying the performers.
It has been a long time since I attended an evening of light entertainment and it was good for the soul with this cold and snowy February.
Thanks to Kerry Boehme for the "Peace of Mind"!
