Discovering a good concert near your home just a week before said concert.
Specifically? I was browsing Andrew Peterson’s website this morning to get details on his Christmas tour.
OK, just a bit about the Christmas tour first. Andy P will be bringing his “Behold the Lamb” Christmas tour to Cedar Rapids, IA on Saturday, December 2. It apparently is being hosted by Youth for Christ as a fundraiser. Seeing as I know the local director of YFC, I’m going to have to see if they need any volunteer help for the day. 🙂 Bonus number 1 this morning was finding out that Derek Webb, his wife Sandra McCracken, and Jill Phillips will all be coming along on this tour. (I suppose the die-hards already knew this, but it was news to me.) So, a big woohoo! for Andy, Derek, and Sandra all in concert in my home town.
Now, the other serendipity: Andy P will be playing a concert in Clermont, IA (about a 2-hour drive from my home) on October 1st (a week from Saturday). It looks like it’s an outdoor concert, 3pm, at the “Cornfest” (and yes, I know, that sounds about as stereotypically Iowan as possible) at Heritage Farm Park in Clermont. Sounds like a nice way to spend a fall Saturday: a drive through the countryside, a good concert, who can ask for better? I’d been wishing to hear some of the stuff from The Far Country in concert… now my wish can be fulfilled.
Well, that’s my happy report for the day. Rejoice with me! 🙂
