It’s been 6 years since my last Godfrey’s Christmas Carol and Ramona convinced me that it was time to try it again. I am always ambivalent about my shows at Godfrey’s but I figured it was time to try again.
There were only nine folks who showed up (and quite a few no-shows) but I had a base to work from, including an autistic girl who’s a big fan. She asked for Peanut Butter and I was glad to oblige. There were another young family with two active sons and an older couple who’s grand-kids couldn’t make it.
I mixed up a variety of carols, broke out the instruments and pieced together a nice, friendly set of songs. It doesn’t particularly matter if there’s a big audience for me. The proof is in the performance for me.
