Three More Brothers and A Sister This Time
Another family of musical performers -- the Haygoods.
They are seven brothers and a sister, all apparently between the ages of sixteen and thirty-two, who are really exceptional musicians. They play violins, saxophones, piano, harp and of course, guitars. Tap-dancing is also part of the deal.
They aren't as polished as the Knudsens from yesterday, they're a little hokey too, but they are good and energetic though interestingly, singing isn't their strongest suit. They do pop, rock, Celtic favorites and a little classical which was actually pretty good. Pachobel, I think. Of the three shows we've seen, we agreed that the Haygoods probably came in third, but that's not to big a problem. They were dang fine.
Went to Silver City but it was closed. The whole place.
Tomorrow is "Spirit of the Dance." Can't lose, can we?
Retired teacher, MaEd Counseling, Married, two adult sons, one fabulous daughter-in-law, two granddaughters. Trying like crazy to make something of retirement. I love getting up at 9AM and love hanging out wherever and whenever I choose, but I'm trying to add meaning. Meaning. Isn't that what we're all after?
