When people leave my concerts, they’re better human beings than they were when they arrived, but not because of me … not because of me. It’s because the main character of my concerts is life and life is exciting. – Facundo Cabral, Argentine Singer and Composer
Mom can play a table like Jerry Lee Lewis plays a piano.
It makes for hot licks, hot tunes and hot times in the old house tonight!
Together, Mom and I make ” This Little Light of Mine” shine like there’s no tomorrow!
Be sure and watch mom’s famous hand-over-hand moves on the repeat of the first verse. Amazing!
So, what are you waiting for, grab yourself a table, play it in the key of G, sing along with us and enjoy this little jewel of a concert!
Warning! The hand-over-hand moves are for professional table players only. What looks simple, takes 90+ years to perfect, so you may not want to try them too fast or you could severely injure yourself, not to mention the table.
Looks like she could still play it just fine on the piano, too!
Did you mean to say it was in the key of “G-Whiz?” Seems to me that I remember her and/or Nel saying that, right?
I’ll take ownership of G-Whiz. I had forgotten that one. We used that line when we would tune our guitars back when I played with the Southgate Singers (folk group). That was a long, long time ago … back when we used sundials to tell time.
My 98-year-old stepmother still loves to sing. She may not remember who I am, but she remembers “The Yellow Rose of Texas”.
There’s nothing like music to put a smile in your heart!
I love to play the piano and your mom’s playing here makes me want to go home and tickle the ivories tonight 🙂
Love your mom and love her joy.
music can be so healing and good for the soul!
Tom, You have such a gift with story telling. I love the pictures and stories that you tell. Keep up the good work
