In Loving Memory|
I've had plenty of experience of trying to get in when I was trying to do an a capella song over the years, since I like a few songs that I either haven't worked up an accompaniment for or feel are better without any.
You're certainly spot on about being familiar enough with a poem or story to actually perform it, rather than stumbling through reading it.
By the way, do I know you? (You're welcome to read and comment even if I don't, but I am curious.)
I don't actually recall if we've met face-to-face. I'm often seen wandering the halls of Ohio or East coast cons with a large Irish harp, so if you've tripped over one of those recently, it may have been mine. I see you a lot on Tom Smith's blog, and stumbled across this entry as I was surfing all the memorials for Dave. (I have many happy memories of time spent in con-suites chatting with Dave, as well as sharing songs, poems and instrumentals with him in and out of the circle. Thus far, I've had little to add to everyone else's tributes, but hope to have a small song in his honor at this weekend's Pittsburgh house-filk.)
Got it. We've talked briefly at several OVFFs, though I doubt we've been formally introduced.
