Fellow students in performance

I have sometimes written here of my involvement in a program at the University of Maryland for retired people called Golden ID. Today I attended a Cabaret performance by another Golden ID student at the Clarice Smith Center for the performing arts.

Here she is on the right singing a duet with another student:

The songs were standards and many from musicals. Below are two students singing "Bess, You is my Woman" by George Gershwin.

An evening with Rosanne Cash

Last Friday night we saw her with her five-piece band at Strathmore in North Bethesda. Her husband, John Leventhal, plays lead guitar.

Rosanne wrote most of the songs, but she had some interesting covers including the folk standards "500 Miles" and "Long Black Veil," plus Bobbie Gentry's "Ode to Billy Joe," and one Beatles' number.

We enjoyed her performance.
