A Couple Steps Back In Time

I turned off the interstate and time seemed to go backward. Finding my way down the old lane I passed the old blacksmith’s shop, then to my destination, the Cooper’s house, an old mansion from the late 1800s. It was a dark walk from the only place to park to the old stone building.

Inside I found a space had been set aside for wine bottles in the old kitchen, and a table in the living room slowly filling with food as the audience chatted. It wasn’t long before I recognized Kippen Martin and Allison Shapira, tonight’s performers milling among the audience.

I found my way into the music room to claim a seat for the evening’s tribute to Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell. Tonight’s House Concert featured, Allison and Kippyn, both classically trained have turned to folk music. I’ve heard them before so I know what treat is coming.
