LOVED both the show and Tanglewood. Tanglewood is my new favorite place for music. First, there are the magnificent grounds and views.
Garrison Keilor and all the performers were really wonderful. After doing the regular show, they started singing everything from Rolling Stones to Andy Williams classics. What I thought would be a small encore ended up going on forever. All the singers had truly amazing voices. Heather Masse of The Wailin' Jennys and the DiGiallonardo Sisters--must get anything they have recorded. Joy Kills Sorrow with Emma Beaton were freakin' awesome!
The one downside is that the theater seats are not angled. This was my view.
Fortunately, I was there to listen for the most part.
I shall leave you with some of the words of wisdom Garrison Keilor put in the souvenir pamphlet.
"There isn't a lot you can do, but you ought to do that much. And if you do, you'll find there is more you can do, and you should do that, too.
It's good to dream, but the urge to perform is not in itself an indication of talent."
Geez, he must have heard me singing at some point in time to have come up with that last one.
