An Incredible Concert

Tuesday, November 13th, 2007

On Saturday, Brian and I went to the Ten Pound Fiddle Coffeehouse concert. It was Seth Bernard and Daisy May as the main act, which was opened by Brandon Foote and Laura Bates. They were backed up by Drew Howard (also known as Captain Midnite). Wow. All of these people I’ve written about here before. All of them are fine musicians solo. What a musical delight it was to be there in the glow of them all on stage.

You know, Lansing is just the right size for the creative communities. One woman in the audience I met originally when we both were going to poetry readings (before I met Brian, maybe a dozen years ago). She is now in my computer class in Haslett, and she sat there knitting during the intermission. We know a bunch of musicians who are mutual friends, so we belong in each others’ lives at least four ways.

It’s like that everywhere I go, at least when it’s an artful event of any sort. There were all sorts of musicians, artists (Regina and Marlene from Working Women Artists, both of whom I met in other realms before joining up in the guild), other friends in the audience. It was like a regular reunion or something!

The photo here was taken at the finale/encore. Seated at left is Drew, then May, Seth, Laura and Brandon. The light was not very good for photos but this one works. It shows the intensity of the music but still shows faces enough to recognize them (at least, if you know them to begin with).

Do visit their Myspace pages and listen a bit:

And the organization under which they all record has a web page where you can listen not only to these folks but some others:

Spend a little time and breathe a breath of fresh air. Relax and enjoy!
