The church that Kathy and I attend is chock-a-block full of musical talent and has an annual celebration in honor of one of the founding couples, the Kimbroughs, who passed away not long before I met Kathy. This evening is known as the Kimbrough Café – a cabaret night that raises money for the church while giving members a chance step in front of the microphone.
Two years ago, Kathy talked me into singing and I did “Wives and Lovers” – a Burt Bacharach tune from the 60s. Last year, we planned to be out of town that weekend so I did not take part. However, this year I went full tilt – even penning lyrics to a political blues tune. My performances are the least of the evening with an astonishing array of music.
Kathy recorded my performances along with some of the others. I wish there was a more complete recording here but at least you can get a feel for the wealth of talent our community possesses.
