Cabin Gallery Open ‘Stage’

In the shadow of the dismantled Old Gallery, the first Open Mic in the Gallery’s Cabin annex was a fun evening that included poems and stories along with music.

Brad Bishop opened the show with his soulful acoustic blues and played the host role for the evening. Our sound man Graham Nelson (without a P.A. to work) took the stage for his first time to give us a well prepared presentation on the amazing flying skills displayed at this year’s EAA Airventure air show of new and refurbished old planes in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Susanna Drogsvold came from Boulder to perform her own (“therapeutic”) ukelele songs and the classic “over the rainbow.” She was accompanied with harmonies and maracas by husband Bruce. Fred Platt did a moving presentation of poems from his new book “Was A Doctor.” Sharon Arms with guitar, sang covers by Joni M., Carole K., Joni M. and Patsy C. Linda Commito read one of the inspiring stories from her book “Love Is the New Currency” with dramatic and humorous help from beau Francesco Tarantino who followed with guitar and singalong Beatles tunes. Everyone then circled and jammed to a lovely variety of songs.

NOTE: The October event will be a week early (24th); because Halloween is the last Friday.
