The Pearl Strings hosted a farewell party for the Bush and Batson families with a concert in the Bush backyard. With no rain and 72 degrees, it couldn't have been a nicer way to say goodbye!
We were so happy that so many of our friends and family stopped by and stayed for the music. It is so fun playing for a crowd that loves you! They laughed at our jokes. We don't get that a lot!
We had to bring in Ed for our big Celtic hymn medley! He was nice to provide some bass, and I was happy to play the hammered dulcimer on it.
We all had an opportunity to mix things up and play lots of different instruments this set. Reagan even got to play the accordion on Mr. Sandman. Barb Reger, (formerly of the Pearl Strings) is on the bottom left of this picture. Doesn't her hair look great?
Reagan outdid herself by making us t-shirts with quotes from the band. They made us laugh! Okay, band made us laugh every week! It was music, entertainment and therapy all wrapped up in one!
Thanks Pearlies! And thanks, friends for listening!
