We made a visit to Barter Theater in Abingdon, VA for a Sunday night performance of Mountain Stage with Larry Groce. Not being regular listeners of NPR, this was a learning experience for us! The show we saw was actually a taping that will be aired on NPR the second week-end in October.
Guests who performed included Whiskey Gentry, Nellie McCay, Gretchen Peters, JD Souther, and Wayne Henderson. It was quite an opportunity and a full evening! You can see on the marquee that the show began at 7:00. Well, it was 10:00 before it was over!
We were given permission to take pictures - without a flash - during the performance; however, this trusty iPad just wouldn't pick up images.:-( I will be referring to this occasion at some point in the future. If you are in an area that is served by NPR, and if you are a fan of the type of music for which the artists I mentioned are known, this is a program you won't want to miss!
I may say that JD Souther and Nellie McCay have a new fan! We were already acquainted with Wayne Henderson, a guitar maker of note, as we have toured his place of business a couple of years ago on a More Than A Vacation trip. I believe a CD or two came home with us that time and became a treat under the Christmas tree.:-)
Abingdon is a familiar place to visit as I worked and lived there for two years a number of years ago, and there are still friends in the area. It is really a wonderful area for a trip you might want to consider.
On another note, I am optimistic that we now have a better functioning Internet connection. We will see.:-)
Have a good week!
Abingdon is quite a unique city to visit, as it is near I-81, with all the convenience that such proximity provides, yet just a couple of blocks into town, you have a lovely old city that still contains much of the flavor of its beginnings. Barter Theater is known for its professional productions, and I'm sure this was no exception! I will echo your sentiments that this is a marvelous place to visit. Happy to know you have a good internet connection now, too! You certainly waited long enough for them to find out how to fix it! Have a great day, Sister!ReplyDelete
