For our listening pleasure
My lovely wife and I went out to an Acoustic Cafe night. The performer was none other than David Maguire. It was an evening of great music and story telling.
David lives in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, where I went to college. He grew up on the ocean, and a lot of his songs reflect his early love. It was a nice surprise to hear so many nautically themed songs in the middle of New Hampshire’s Great North Woods.
We knew we were in for a treat when one of his first songs was set in St. Augustine Florida, one of our favorite little cities. He lived in the old city for a couple years. It turns out we hung out at a lot of the same places.
We got to talk with him during breaks and after his performance. He too is a builder of boats and we compared notes. No doubt we’ll soon meet again on boat building forums. All in all, a most excellent evening.
