West Chester Fun Alert
We are very happy to be back singing in West Chester on Friday night, 7-10pm, at Broad Run Golf Club's Bordley House Grille. This is a cozy, comfy, friendly spot: nice people who like listening to music, comfy chairs, clubby atmosphere, good food and drink. A great history, too. When the first owner, Judge Bordley, an innovative experimental farming guy in the 1700's, ran low on foreign beer and wine, he started brewing his own beer and planted a vineyard. A man after our own heart! More of the history is on the website: www.bordleyhousegrille.com.
We have Easter weekend off, and then we are singing at The Ship Inn, Exton on Friday, April 10th, Ludwig's Inn on Friday, April 17th, a private party on April 19th, and we are back singing at the shore on Friday, April 24th. Not everyone knows that you can ask us to play at your private party or special occasion. These are my favorite gigs--we get to be a part of people's lives and share in special moments. The love we see expressed at these events is priceless. We get to see all the deepest good. Sad to say, cynical me is always waiting for some big family fight to break out, but it never happens. Just love.
We have a unique musical adventure for you this Saturday night at The Other Farm Brewing Company in Boyertown. The Other Farm is a nanobrewery recently opened by some super creative young folks who love music. It is a great place to listen and dance and mingle, lots of space to wander around plus cozy tables to nest at. Because it is an innovative listening kind of place, Dave and I are planning to do all originals, and we are working up some new ones to raise the adventure bar. I am sorry to report that NO ONE outside of Jamaica has learned our dance to our One Heart reggae song yet, despite my best efforts, but maybe Saturday will be the day. I actually get to bring my keyboard along, which makes me very excited. Dave remains wary.
We are going to be sharing the stage with friends from First Sundays at Hidden Valley Farm--Blue Moon and The Barn Swallows. The Barn Swallows are a country folkie pop bluegrass duo performing home grown songs on guitar, dobro, mandolin and harmonica with tight vocal harmonies. Blue Moon is an acoustic trio playing a fun mix of country, blues, folk, old time and bluegrass. They play original tunes as well as covers of old favorites and traditional tunes. Their sound evokes nostalgic feelings of days gone by. Instrumentation includes guitar, dobro, mandolin, banjo & upright bass.
I would like to extend our sincere and deep thanks to everyone who came to Ludwigs Inn last Saturday, despite the mounds of snow everywhere. What a warm and fun night, and none of that warmth and happiness can happen without you. It is the kind of fun & companionship & happiness that we can only create together.
We have next weekend off from performing to work on finishing our new CD, the recording and video of One Heart, and our screenplay, from which we took a long break. We had asked a screenplay guy to read our script, and he immediately saw this huge hole, that we didn't really know what our message was--we sort of knew and we had a few points, but not one core message. Well, we believe we have it now, so we can get back to writing. Our next performance is Friday, March 27th at Broad Run Golf Club in West Chester.
Love & Peace, Donna&Dave
