"Balsam Range," March 16th at the Stanly Co. Agri-Civic Center, in Albemarle, NC. "Balsam Range" is one of my, and my wife's, favorite bluegrass groups. They often perform with the Atlanta Pops Orchestra.....not your typical bluegrass music.

‘The Bootleg Beatles’ in Cardiff, just before Christmas. Stunningly good and very convincing. If you’re of an age and you get a chance, go and see them - you won’t regret it.

I recently went to see a performance of some Mozart and Schubert chamber music. I'd always wanted to hear Erlkönig in person, and I'm glad I got the opportunity. :D

Two days ago I enjoyed the concert of Ariana Burstein (Cello) and Roberto Legnani (Guitar).

Just bought two tickets to the Ocrafolk Festival, which will be June 7-9 on Ocracoke Island. There will be several performers.....Molasses Creek, Coyote, Mahalo Jazz, etc. They will also have storytelling. Donald Davis, a renowned storyteller.....who is my wife's first cousin, and who lives on Ocracoke,......will be telling stories. He'll have his audience laughing one minute and crying the next....he really is that good.

I worked as a lighting tech for stage and film for 25 years. I have seen hundreds of shows from music concerts to broadway shows!
I can’t remember if I have bought a ticket to any show in a long time.
I guess I got kinda burned out on shows!
I would like to see Taylor Swift again!!
