Our kids school, Little Red Elisabeth Irwin, has a coffeehouse a few times a year. It is great. Music, readings, anything you can think of. A great jam at the end, etc.
This past Saturday night we were treated to Jimmy Norman. He played some blues and some jazz. I felt like I was in New Orleans. Jimmy was one of the original Coasters. He also collaborated and worked with Bob Marley. Jimmy seemed like a very cool customer.
There was also a few bands from the school. One group, that played Mendelssohn. Someone on piano, another on cello and another on violin. I was mesmerized and blown away to see High School kids still playing classical music at a Coffeehouse. The middle school band was quite good too.
