Every once and a while something really cool happens and you connect with other musical people who spark inspiration, and that’s what happened in the last few weeks. A musician friend from shinny recommended me for a harmonica gig with a senior’s choir. So the gig involves playing harmonica parts for Billy Joel’s “Piano Man”. Cool? Ya, I thoroughly enjoyed working on the tune in first position (Song is in C and I play it on a C diatonic harmonica – what we call first position).
Penelope Dale and her husband Rich (piano) are very much involved with this choir and The Treblemakers sound pretty good and they loved my contribution for rehearsal. So I have that coming up this tues. morning (listed on my gigs) and I thought this may be of interest to some of you seniors who want to get out there and sing sometime in the future?
Here’s Penelope’s Publicity Info:
