With the first quarter of the year past, we move into spring with jubilation! It has been a challenging winter for many around the world – especially in the US and UK, where storms brewed and kept winter hanging about. Even on this weekend, there is snow and blustery winds blowing in several areas. Stay warm…the sun will be out soon!
Whilst we are sipping our hot chocolate this evening, we are reflecting on an extra-special show with Russell Eponym at Château Ce Soir that wrapped up a few hours ago. Now, all of Russell‘s presentations – be they literary or musical – are spectacular in their own right, this particular gathering (at one point, more than 50 had joined us) was extra-special. Now and again, there’s just this amazing feeling that permeates the atmosphere, and it was evident for this evening’s show. Everyone was in an upbeat mood, and we had many new visitors dropping in to enjoy Russell‘s talents – and he was in fine form on the guitar and harmonica, not to mention those velvety vocals. The songlist was a fine mix, as well, and we heard music from Bert Jansch, Donovan, Bob Dylan, John Prine, and Russell himself! It was magical!
As you know, Russell is Poet Laureate, Artist in Residence, and Musician Extraordinaire at Ce Soir Arts. He fulfills all those titles with supreme excellence, and you can expect some stellar performances as the year moves on. In fact, there will be some exceptionally fine surprises ahead, so…stay tuned! And don’t forget to join us every Tuesday at NOON SLT at The Magic Tree for an hour of literary genius and music from across the genres. Russell‘s readings are always special, but your presence will make them even more so. Of course, there’s every Thursday at 2 PM too, as Russell‘s delightful folk, blues, and beyond fill the sim with beauty. Come along and enjoy with us!
