Frazer/Exton Fun Alert
The Ship Inn, Friday night, 7-10pm, Rt. 30 in between Exton and Frazer, near the Rt. 202/30 exit. Sooo looking forward to singing for all those dear people at The Ship Inn. They listen! They request songs faster than we can play them! It is like a nice party there, a lovely party with dear, sweet friends. Please consider joining us--very good food, pretty atmosphere, warm people. Reservations recommended if you would like a table. Be sure and tell them you are coming for the music, or they will put you in a far away room, and you will miss all the fun (this has happened before). As always, please tell us if you are coming alone and would like company, and we will introduce you to some new friends and fellow music lovers.
CREATIVE NEWS: DAVE has been hard at work on the One Heart video. He is combining footage he shot in Jamaica with footage we shot here in our studio. We believe the recording to be done, but we may still fuss with it. Dave played at least 10 instruments; he did an amazing job. I played mandolin & created a Jamaican chorus of all Donnas; it sounds pretty cool.
DONNA: I am finishing my 4th piano song. Recently, a Facebook friend told the story of her first date with her husband 30 years ago. It was a blind date, and since they met that night, they have never been apart, and they are as much in love as ever. So, I HAD to write a song about that, and it decided it had to be a piano song, and it has taken me forever to create and then write out each note of the piano accompaniment, since I have no experience playing the piano, and I can't just make it up as I go along like some of you. My brain has spent this time bemoaning the fact I don't (didn't) play the piano, while at the same time acknowledging that, BECAUSE I don't play the piano and I don't know any of the piano rules, maybe I can create something fresh and unique and pretty, just because I don't have any experience with the instrument. I have finished writing each note of the accompaniment out, and now the only stumbling block is I have to learn how to play what I wrote. I pretty much have to memorize it, since my sight reading skills are nil. I am now up to the point of working with a metronome, trying to package all the accidentals and triplets my brain told me to write out into something that will someday sound to other people's ears the way it sounds in my head.
And another song is in the works. While I was trying to figure out how the above song should sound, how to glue the parts together, a few notes came into my head/fingers that sounded like the passage of time, and instead of using them in the above song, another song popped in my head--The Insomnia Song. We are hoping to make the video and recording of that this weekend! It will be something for people to sing on those long nights when sleep evades.
Ludwigs Inn, Glenmoore, PA--Friday--April 17th--our local haunt, YAY!
