Good music always evokes emotions for me – it’s something to feel, not just hear. Although we were unable to get to his concert sponsored by our Haywood County Arts Council, Anthony generously gave us his latest CD and it is amazing! After all of our guests checked out, we had it on as background music as we were getting things done around here, and we both had to pause and give it its due. It’s not background music, it’s the kind of music you absorb, the kind that transports you to another place. It’s passionate, moody and uplifting!
We’ve gotten used to being in the background of a lot of our local events due to our role as Innkeepers, and love to share in our guests’ joy when they experience what our area has to offer. But this time we had regrets. We obviously missed a master of his craft, and an experience that doesn’t happen often. You better believe if there is ever a chance for us to see Anthony in concert, we are going to try our best to do it! Who knows, we may have a trip to Chicago in our future, or if we’re fortunate enough, maybe Anthony will come back to Waynesville!
