Omission

I almost forgot! The highlight of the weekend was attending Bruce Hornsby's solo "recital" at Guilford College last night as part of the Eastern Music Festival, the annual month-long local festival of musical performances. As always, it was a great show--2.5 hours--he's one of my favorite live performers. The highlight of the concert was unquestionably Bruce's impromptu playing of "The Teddy Bears' Picnic" during some banter with the crowd--a song after my own heart. He teased the first line, but after a few delighted squeals from the audience (me included) he played the whole thing. (At which point DrMellow looked at me like I was nuts, seeing as how he didn't recognize the song.)

I'm going to have to dig out my own copy; somewhere I've got the Garcia/Grisman version on tape (yes, tape), complete with the children's storybook to accompany it. The bear characters even look like David and Jerry. A good friend gave it to me in college so that I'd always have a bedtime story at hand. :)

Ya know, you can digitize that tape so you can have it forever and ever and ever . . .

True. I may just have to do that.

I just found the tape recorder so I can finish my stack.
