Magical March will not be complete without this coming Saturday’s annual music party by my students in the West Music Recital Hall. I have twenty five students performing who range from age 4 all the way up.
One of my students, who studies harp with Malerie Weed, will be also performing on her harp. My little harpist’s twin sister, who studies with my dear friend and the mother of my godsons Jennifer Masada, will also be performing on flute.
Two of my adult students are doing a duet inspired by an enchanting Kevin Burke performance. The three of us were at the Kevin Burke concert together and we were so struck by his version of Deford Bailey’s ‘Evening Prayer Blues’ that we decided to arrange it as a duet.
Also on the program: plenty of traditional Irish music, some traditional Scottish, Canadian and American Old-Time, Québécois, a touch of classical, some American classics, a generous helping of popular music, as well as compositions by Sean Watkins of Nickel Creek, The Proclaimers, Ed Reavy, Jerry Holland, Neil Moore, Vincent Broderick, Liz Carroll, Kevin Burke, Gerry Conlon, and local fiddle legend Guy Drollinger.
Atticus will be singing and accompanying himself on piano and Liam is the official photographer for the day. He studies ukulele with another teacher so his performance opportunities will come later.
Photos and hopefully a bit of video to follow!
Do I have the best job ever or what?!?
