Together they soar.
The Songbirds filled my heart with joy as my first concert at the library as a music-lover-only.
Without my communications specialist camera duties of the past years attached, my dear wife Karen accompanied me to appreciate the individual and collective cool of Johanna Jewitt, Maureen Henesey and Conna Colton in the Liverpool Public Library’s Carman Community Room to kick off the Women’s Voices Series on Sunday, Jan. 15.
A beautiful afternoon it was as they thoroughly entertained the filled space of happy listeners.
You’re the man, Sam.
Happy moments included Songbirds sound man Sam Patterelli reluctantly agreeing to saunter up to the stage for a turn on his non-primary instrument harmonica — Central New York knows him well for his bass-playing ways with Colton’s band The Troublemakers — during he and Colton’s wedding song.
The band members told everybody to keep and eye out on their social media for further news of their May show at the way-cool Homer Center for Performing Arts, a date set aside to honor the music of Linda Ronstadt. Indeed.
