Magical Moment 605, "Not So Easy Without Pips"

My parents made the trek across country to visit Eddie and I. We were thrilled to have them and I was ecstatic when they were able to come see and hear me play at the Bernards Inn. 

It was a fairly slow night, so I just played all my favorites (and my parents favorites). One of them, was this rendition of "Midnight Train to Georgia." No, there are no Pips to back me up (and I botched the beginning), but if you listen at 3:06, you'll hear a lively guest in the audience give me a, "Woo woo!"

Ps: I'm headed to the Great White North today! I'm so excited for my first trip EVER to Canada. I'll be a bit out of the loop until next week as I attend a Ballet Accompanist Mentorship Program with Canada's National Ballet School.

You don't need the pips!!! I love your version. So wonderful to have your biggest fans in the room, huh?
Enjoy Canada!

Do you ever look like your mother.

You're in my neck of the woods! At least Google tells me that your program is in Toronto if you have some free time. I'm just west of Toronto.. in Mississauga.

Elizabeth- You don't need any pips! You don't need one pip. Seriously, this is just beautiful. Wish my f-i-l was still right in Bernardsville--I'd be stopping by the Inn. Thank you for bringing a snippet of your wonderful work to those who can't be there in person. :)

Good luck in Canada!
