The Incredible Concert

Hi Folks-

I told you last week that I was going to Saratoga Performing Arts Center to hear Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt and Allison Krauss and I did go, with Katy and Sophia, and I’ve never felt so grateful for attending any event, whether it be music or even sports related. All three performers were so much themselves, and played the right amount of their old familiar favorites, as well as each covering songs by other artists and each playing their own more recently recorded songs. One of the highlights was Allison joining Bonnie to sing Angel from Montgomery, written by John Prine, a great favorite of mine. To hear them harmonize together had me in a state of wonder, and had tears flowing down the faces of both Katy and Sophia, very good singers themselves.

And of course there was Willie, the last to go on, and certainly the star of the show. He played the songs we know as Willie’s best and he paid homage to his old buddies Waylon and Merle, and to Hank Williams. He played his entire set with the same voice we all love and played his old guitar with passion and strength. He was awesome.

We have great fish coming in tomorrow, with another appearance of King Salmon, and Lemon Sole, Haddock, Dry Scallops, Halibut, Swordfish and Pemaquid oysters. We got a fresh shipment of Carrier coffee in yesterday, and I brought some of their instant coffee home because I am well and truly hooked on it. Oh well. It’s expensive, but I get a discount so Sharon better not say anything.

Fish arriving tomorrow:

  • Alaskan Cod, flash frozen at sea
  • East Coast Halibut
  • Wild Alaskan King Salmon
  • Sustainable Shetland Salmon
  • Dayboat Haddock
  • Swordfish
  • Lemon Sole
  • Rainbow trout
  • Icelandic Arctic Char
  • 16/20 Wild Gulf Shrimp
  • 10/20 Dry Scallops
  • Bluepoint oysters
