(Paula Tobias will be guest-blogging here for a short time while ‘That Woman’ – Loraine Ritchey takes a much needed R-n-R.)
I went to an Opera this evening (Saturday).
Okay it was the Fayreweather Concert at the Black River Landing, but I described Paul to Frank as an Operatic Singer. Paul’s theatrical presentations with music, well, it’s beyond description; You have to experience it to appreciate it.
We had a great time. People were dancing in their chairs, the demographics were varied and in a sentence: He was good. He was damn good.
The last time I watched/heard Fayreweather was in the Flats in Cleveland in the early 80’s. Even then I was amazed at Paul’s theatrics. Anyone else remember White Punks on Dope?
We heard Fayreweather songs, a song about the city of Lorain, Genesis, and Jethro Tull.
Did I mention he played the flute and guitar besides singing?
If you weren’t there, you missed a great concert.
