After the musical entertainment, we ended the evening with our poetry workshop. Each poet read a current poem followed by friendly and insightful discussion.

The Musical Entertainment
Steven Radice is our friend, singer, a composer of songs, poet, and player of ukulele, guitar, percussion and keyboards

His program for the Evening, "A Love Song Medley", began with "I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen" with "noodling" accompaniment by Rick on an 1843 ten-key Viennese flute. Kath was particularly delighted as her father used to sing her that song growing up.

Steven invited Kath to play her Vietnamese DanMo for accompaniment on "Shine On Harvest Moon", with Rick on flute.

Later Kath sang a lilting rendition of "Kkkkkaty" to finish the program, with Steven accompanying

You can here some of Steven's songs on his GarageBand site
