Tanya’s sister and two nieces are in town and last night one of her nieces, Lauren, borrowed the neighbour’s guitar and played at an open mic in Long Beach! And she totally rocked!
I made a little video; I put Lauren’s whole song and some bits of the others at the end. (There is a beat boxer at the very end.)
I found the evening really special because everyone was sharing a piece of themselves and being vulnerable. There were some pretty brave performances. And when they would make a mistake they would get over it and continue playing. Some of the most unassuming people were very talented. (To my inexperienced ear anyway.)
You might find the video long, I would recommend leaving it on in the background as you check the rest of your email. Enjoy!
