Second time’s a charm.
That was the going sentiment last night as folks left our backyard after enjoying the latest installment in our annual supper + song concert series.
Not to say that April’s s+s launch party featuring beauties Karen Elson and Kate Tucker wasn’t an absolute treat: it was amazing. Truthfully, we can’t imagine a more lovely way to kick off our third season with a lineup that looked as good as they sounded.
Last night was more of the same, as s+s vets and newbies, those old and young (the baby contingent just keeps growing!), gathered in the gravel to enjoy the immense talent of singer-songwriters Caitlin Rose and Rayland Baxter, who shared a double bill.
You could tell the crowd loved them by the way they didn’t respond. You could hear a pin drop as Caitlin hit her high notes in that signature crystalline voice of hers; everyone listened, rapt, as Rayland crafted gorgeous harmonies with the help of his two honey-throated backup singers. Gorgeous.
Simply put, if this was any indication of what each third Wednesday of the next five months holds in store, we’re in for one hot summer.
