Another beautiful day to play! This time it was in a park grove in Trumball, CT, part of a regular noon time Tuesday family concert series. Last year it was rainy, and a “select” audience showed up. Today, my goodness, we had a crowd. I did it au plen aire, a mangled French expression for “out in the air”, no sound system (oops), but the kids gathered around and we had a ball. Unplugged.

Interestingly enough, I had my bag of rhythm instruments out, and I said, “Come up and pick up an instrument.” Well, for the first time, a little girl went right for my 1920’s mandolin. Whoa! Oh, well, that’s what I said, and I should always watch what I say around kids…. But you know that.

Off to Annapolis, crack o’dawn….
