We Were Taken To The River And Beyond

There is so much history in the Memphis music scene, and three of the elder statesmen of that scene headlined a stupendous show titled Take Me to the River at the Parker Playhouse over the past weekend.

These three gentlemen – William Bell, Bobby Rush, and Don Bryant – are 78, 84, and 75 years of age, respectively, but none of them show any signs of slowing. We were in the presence of music royalty and we knew it. And we appreciated it!

Storytelling And Songs Presented By A Master

Everybody knows at least one of Jimmy Webb‘s songs even though they may not know his name. That was not the case with the full audience at Crest Theatre at Old School Square where everyone did know his name.

Jimmy Webb

We were rewarded with a great evening of both stories and songs, mostly from his earlier days as a songwriter.

Songwriting Master To Perform in Delray Beach

I am a long-time fan of Jimmy Webb, at least since the first time I heard ‘MacArthur Park’ in 1967-68. It was my then-boyfriend and my ‘song’ because of the reference to a ‘yellow cotton dress’!

2017 By The Numbers

Several years ago, a friend suggested I put together some statistics about my year in music. I am continuing the tradition once again, despite not seeing as many shows last year! At the beginning of the year I said I was going to slow down my concert-going and unfortunately because I was forced to relocate from a fabulous music city to one that is less so, I saw fewer shows than I had since 2013… Sad face…

no music

Go out and hear live music! The musicians will be most appreciative! Your mental health will thank you too…
