Liz Carroll and John Doyle performed last evening at Washington State Community College as a part of the Evergreen Arts & Humanities Series (for which yours truly serves as chairperson), and WOWZY, they gave a heck of a performance!! Our auditorium was PACKED--standing room only--with folks seated in the lobby just to get a "listen" of these incredibly talented musicians. (And I might add, two very, very nice and genuine people.)
They left Marietta this morning and hit the road to play two more gigs before boarding a plane on Tuesday morning at 6:00 AM to head to the White House, where they will play at the St. Patrick's Day luncheon for President Barack Obama and the Prime Minister of Ireland, Brian Cowen. How sweet is that!!
Following the concert, several people gathered at the home of the college president to meet and talk to Liz. (Alas, John was a bit under the weather and opted, quite wisely, to hit the sack back at the hotel). Such a gracious woman, Liz talked to people for a couple of hours and hung out as if she had known all of us for years. It was a delightful time.
