James Taylor, Carole King and Danny Kortchmar, originally uploaded by DianthusMoon.
My friend Lorin gifted me with a ticket to see James Taylor and Carole King in their Troubador Reunion tour and we went last night! It’s always great to see James again (5th time since 1979!), but seeing Carole was such an added bonus! She has such a powerful voice. She sounds like she did back in the 1970s. James had his friends and former band members Danny Kortchmar, Leland Skyar and Russ Kunkel performing too. I know Leland, the dude with the long beard in the back here is a serious tchotchkes collector-I like him even more.
There’s always a bit of a downer, we got stuck in traffic for 1.5 hours near the center, but in total I think we were in our vehicles (we met at a certain spot) for almost 4 hours coming and going. We missed the first 5 or so minutes of the concert, but they had started later or we would have missed more.
I thank Lorin from the bottom of my heart for the ticket, the ride, the t-shirt, but mostly her thoughtfulness. Thanks to her hubby who waited for us in the parking lot!
The first photo was taken by my with my PowerShot and the photo of Lorin and me was taken with her iPhone
Another bummer-my 14 yr old van needs a pricey transmission repair and we can’t see putting a ton of money into it. We will have to start looking for a smaller, get around vehicle. I’ve had it for 11 yrs and it only gave us yet another transmission issue when we first bought it. It did have it’s shares of weird noises and the a/c leaking, but I liked driving it for the most part. Wish us luck!
I am so glad to hear you had a good time. It’s nice to getaway like that once in a while.
Good luck with the car situation. It seems there is always something that needs replacing.
Glad to hear you had a great time at your concert. I am feeling for you on the car, I hate car shopping!
What a wonderful and thoughtful gift that was from your friend, especially knowing what a huge fan of James Taylor you are:-) How awesome that you also got to see Carole King!!! I’m sure getting stuck in traffic and such was all well worth being able to be at the concert! lol xoxo
