Wednesday: (10/19) Chili beans for breakfast. I’m sicker so relaxed at home. Lou made hamburgers and got me some more hot and sour soup for lunch.
We had a 1530 appointment to go see a house we were interested in. Interesting place right in town on 3.4 acres with a huge house and it’s own forest. It seemed to need too much work for us.
We got dinner at Marie Calendars on our way back to Ferndale for a concert in the evening. Sierra Hull was named the IBMA Mandolin Player of 2016. She and her group played at The Old Steeple. It’s an old church that makes a great small music venue. In fact during the day it is a music store. The group consisting of Sierra Hull (mandolin), Ethan Jodziewicz (double bass), and Justin Moses (mandolin, banjo, Dobro, backing vocals) presented an outstanding 2.5 hour concert. Each is extremely talented. However, my favorite was actually Ethan Jodziewicz, the base player. He played it like I prefer, as a real instrument not just a rhythm of three notes. Amazing. Here’s a sample.
