my summer time back up vocalists

I met Marion about 3 summers ago at Millers...she comes each year with family to enjoy the Outer Banks beauty, good food at Millers and wonderful music on the deck! Marion is writing a book which should be out BEFORE her next visit to OBX...we'll keep you posted on the final copy availability. Good luck Marion!
Tale of the Whale is a most scenic venue...the water, the light house off in the distance, the water fowl, the people...ahh yes the people. Occasionally folks will bring friends and make a night of it on the gazebo...that's exactly what this group did the week before the season ended...a beautiful evening inspired them to join me on all the songs they knew singing back ups on material especially from my CD of standards, AT LAST: Slow Boat to China was the favorite! Thank you Barbara, Gladys, Mary Ellen, and Dee!

Last night was the last of our Christian Music Summer Concert Series for the '09 season. Over the course of 8 evening performances we had approximately 450 attendees who contributed $1020 to our "love offering" which was split 50-50 and presented to its recipients last night: Marilyn Canning from the Beach Food Pantry and Bill Pitt from ICO (Interfaith Community Outreach). We enlisted the talents of 8 other Christian artists who blessed us with their material, energy and time. I am humbled and honored to be part of such a generous community. Thank you to all who supported us this summer. See you in 2010!

Connie the blue heron & white egret were doing "the dance" without you tonight at Millers! missed ya!!
