Wish You Could Have Been At The Concert!

 

historic union county courthouse

We always have a great time when we perform at the Historic Union County Courthouse, but somehow our recent concert there seemed especially enjoyable. Like Pap used to say it had a good spirit about it.

There were several Blind Pig readers who got to attend, but I know most of you live to far away to think about coming to one of our performances so I wanted to share part of the concert with you today.

Chatter and Chitter have always bantered back and forth on stage, but in the last year it seems the back and forth have become an integral part of their show. They were in rare form on Friday night. They had the place laughing like it was a comedy show instead of a music concert. They’ve also become quite the storytellers, as you can tell when they share the story of my birthday chairs.

I hope you enjoyed the peak into the concert! I’ll share more of the show with you in the coming weeks.

Tipper

    Sorry that I missed your concert. I was pretty well under the weather. Just had surgery to remove an impacted wisdom tooth that day. I heard it was very good, and I know it was.

    Now that was honest-to-goodness down home entertainment–genuine in every sense of the word. I’d have been delighted to be in that Union County Courthouse audience. The Wilson/Pressleys are a gift, and those girls possess, as the French would say, a certain “Je ne sais quoi”–an appealing quality that cannot be adequately described.

    My birthday is on the 1st. My daughter’s is on the 11th. She asked me what I wanted for my birthday. I said money.
    “How much?”
    “$500”
    “I don’t have $500.”
    “I’ll loan it to you. Now, what do you want for your birthday?”
    “Money I guess.”
    “Will $500 be OK?”
    “That would be great. I could go thrift shopping with it.”
    “Yes, but first you’ll need to pay back the $500 you owe me.”

    Tipper,
    I was there in the 3rd row, with The Deer Hunter, and 4 others I didn’t know, but were happy to be there too. My favorite part was when Chatter was explaining and complementing Katie on writing a song. Katie interrupted her and said “Corie, why didn’t you just tell ’em I wrote this in a hurry while coming up the stairs or something? That would sound better.” The audience really liked that.
    All their songs were good, but my favorite was from their new CD, “Walking my Lord Up Calvary’s Hill.” …Ken

    I notice Paul is out of uniform. Is that a tie he has on? Did he have a funeral to go to before the show? Don’t he know that thing will get tangled up in his strings and choke him to death? Any-who, all’s well that ends well I dreckon!
    I’m diggin the bass by the way. “There is a Time” is nothing without the bass line. Briscoe Darlin played it on a jug. I guess he couldn’t play a quitar.

    Oh my goodness, the girls are doing great. The whole group is doing great! Remember when they were little and just starting…with the attention span of a gnat! They’re all grown up now, I can hardly believe it.

    They just keep getting better and better. I know a lot of that is practice and practice and more practice. But I surmise a goodly part of it is finding and developing their own space.
    I don’t know myself as well as I want to think I do. But with Paul I can say I am what I am by the grace of God. I reckon we all are still under construction.
