MICHAEL JACOBS put on a great show on Saturday night. Not only is his songwriting very inspirational, his delivery of his songs is peaceful and inspiring. On some songs songwriting and singing style were definitely unique. We want to thank our local APPLE MARKET grocery store for agreeing to sponsor this show.
We also want to thank Michael Jacobs for coming to our place to play, and give our thanks to our friends and neighbors who came by to support this touring musician. I learn so much about these musicians we get to come out here to play in the middle of nowhere, and sometimes learn about human nature, by hosting these house concerts. I can only hope everyone else enjoys them as much as Andy and I do, and I know they appreciate playing in front of an audience of more than four people! They are always the caliber of musician you could go to OKC and hear in a crowded venue or smoky bar, but out here it is an entirely different atmosphere and experience. Michael left on Sunday morning to head to Amarillo, and then home to Tennessee to spend some time with his family. He generously left a book for me to read, and we are enjoying his CD's. Shucks, I'm in another room of the house and don't have his facebook or website information with me, but I know you can check him out at www.sacrednation.com for a start. SAFE TRAVELS TO YOU, MICHAEL!
Tomorrow, Tuesday, Caroline Cotter is making a second appearance at the Chaparral Retreat! And she's touring with another singer, Emily Scott Robinson. I just found out that Emily was on the Voice TV show, so some of you may have seen her. Tuesday's show is Sponsored by our local WHIRLWIND WINERY and Brad Stinson et al. Brad and Don grow grapes here in Oklahoma and blend their own unique and distinctive wines from those grapes.
I'm looking forward to seeing Caroline again and meeting Emily Robinson. They are coming here after a weekend at the Folk Alliance International festival in Kansas City. Come out and support these hard-working singer/songwriters and let's show them some OKLAHOMA HOSPITALITY! Any questions, call Linda or Andy Barrett at 580-623-4269 or look at the OKLAHOMA HOUSE CONCERTS facebook page.
