Monique and I went to dinner and then to a show last night with sans_peur . We saw Lucy Kaplansky and Richard Shindell. She's folk and country. He's folk and blues. They both did a bit of the program on their own and part of it together. Beside singing, she also plays acoustic guitar and piano. She has a really nice voice but she lacks in variety. All of her songs sound the same, though she sang a beautiful version of Jeff Buckley's "Hallelujah" while playing the piano. Richard had a backup band for his segment, a violin and double bass and he himself played mostly electric guitar. He too has a really pleasant voice and the harmonies between the two singers were really good. They're a pleasant mix.
Unfortunately, I was wiped out and it was all I could do to stay awake through a lot of the concert, but it was still a very worthwhile show and I don't spend enough social time with sans_peur, so it was a good evening.
On the way home Monique got more bad news about her dad. Things have taken a really bad turn for the worse for him. I see another trip to FL in Monique's future and soon. She's not taking it well at all.
