As promised in this post, The Showcase Gallery was magically transformed from the wide open space you see above, into an inviting listening room setting. The event started with a covered dish brought by excited music lovers to share and visit with one another. Then at seven-thirty, Kris Ferris announced guitarist Drake Duffer who wowed the group of seventy-five plus people with his classical and funk guitar. (A must be seen and heard performance of the highest quality.)
After the audience had been sufficiently wowed by this young man's time on our stage, Kris introduced the Martha Bassett Trio, which consisted of Martha Bassett, Sam Frazier, and Pat Lawrence. They performed not only their own original songs but also some of Martha's, of Sam's, and by other local musicians as well And by they time they were in full-swing, there were probably 100 people clapping, whistling and smiling. It was an evening of magical proportions. If you missed being there, we're sorry, but do plan to attend the next performance which will be May 6th. You can learn more about that event here.
Melody Watson shared her thoughts about the evening on The Collabative's website; you can read that over here.
