It was a quiet week this week compared to last week. 
On a sad note, the music world lost another great talent. Leon Russell died at the age of 74.

I was lucky to see him in 2014 at the Lebanon Opera House: performance images

On a brighter note, two of my favorite singer/songwriters are coming to the area-Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt!


I've been following these guys for a long time.

The Lebanon Opera House show on Jan. 21 is a benefit for the Rusty Berrings Skate Park in Lebanon NH. I've photographed the park too! Rusty Berrings Skate Park.

Lyle and John are also performing in Rutland at the Paramount Theater on Jan. 27.

Both shows are being promoted by Kirschner Concerts of Norwich, VT.
