It was a fundraiser for a very worthy cause, First in Families NC.
The show had a little bit for everyone. Peter Holsapple opened the show and played some excellent songs and one of my favorite ones, Amplifier. It has 'black humor,' he says. Back before it all became 'ironic' instead.
Next up was Sweet By and By, a four piece bluegrass group, all young women, playing their original music. Their voices were so sweet and pure and their songs were superb. Really nice stuff. And they were having FUN which was nice to see.
Sweet By and By
The headliner was Peter Lang who played blues and folk guitar. I've *never* seen or heard guitar playing done that well. I kid you not. Defies explanation. I snagged a CD and look forward to enjoying it.
It was Lang's 60th birthday and there was a bit of a party for him and we all sang Happy Birthday to him. Someone made a huge cake and at the end of the show for those of us still left, we all had a piece of Lang's birthday cake.
Another wonderful night in my sweet town, Durham.
