I had the great pleasure this past weekend of participating in our second cancerresearch/suirvivors fund raising concert in beautiful Lebanon, PA. Also performing at the show were my friends Peter Alecia (and Dale and Dave) with their Bluegrass band "High School Reunion" and my friend Christopher Westfall. The show was at the beautiful Coleman Chappel and was a great succes in raising money for the Lebanon Chapter of "Survivors and Friends".
The morning after the show, Chris played me a song called "Talking with the Angels", perfromed by a very talented singer/ Songwriter named
Tim Dabbs.This particular song was written by Wayne Francis. Tim oblviously had the same reaction to this incredible song that Chris and I had. I never knew Wayne was a songwriter. I do now! This is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. If you click on Waynes profile
at the bottom of his site (http://www.lightfoot.ca/wprofile.htm)you will find info about Wayne's CD. Tim's verson of Wayne's song is marvelous as well. I don't know how often Wayne reads this site but thanks Wayne. That song made my day yesterday.

Bill,
Thanks for bringing Wayne's songwriting to our attention - he is very talented, and I am looking forward to receiving the CDs and hearing this song.
Also, congratulations on another successful fund raising event for "Survivors and Friends"! I am sure it was a fine evening of music and shared friendship.

Brian - since you and Gloria are making it to Bill's concert you might be interested in the fact that Bill does sing for us at every Massey event, too. You and Gloria should start planning for a lovely vacation to the big city of Toronto in May of '08. Bring your geetar and join in.
Char and I do a lovely duet with our air geetars.

Brian and Gloria and Gloria's sister and husband came all the way from the Pittsburgh area to not only support the musicians (Peter, Dale, Dave, Chris and myself) but more importantly to support this great cause to battle cancer. We owe you the thanks Brian! I deeply appreciate it!

My ears told me this....

Listening to "Let The River Run Free", I was amazed by how much the music and phrasing resonate with the Lightfoot influence.

Very Nice.
