I’ve had the pleasure of having Eric Harper stay with us for the last 10 days. He was invited to China to participate in Cheng Lin’s Peony Festival concert in Luo Yang. During his stay we’ve had some opportunities to work on some music together and have come up with a lovely new song for my new original album which I look forward to sharing (he also plays on a couple other pieces on the CD). More on that later…
Last night as we were consulting, we decided to have a house concert for Eric to share his wonderful music with friends. After some thought we felt we would be limiting the number of people who could attend if it were held in our home. So I felt inspired to ask Jin R whether she would agree to have the concert at the Green T. Living where I performed for my debut ‘Fire and Gold’ concert last year. Of course Jin R graciously accepted.
Eric describes himself as being like a chameleon. He is a talented composer and vocalist and what makes him unique is that he can create any style of music when asked. He is highly entertaining as he can charm and move his listener with his soft ballads or classical pieces as well as bringing an edge with his music when he plays rock or flamenco. He will be playing varied pieces at the concert and I’m thrilled to be able to join him singing on one of his compositions called ‘Say God sufficeth’. KC Porter may also make a special appearance at the concert. Click here to listen to some of Eric’s music.
The concert will be held in the Tea Reflection Room at the Green T. House Living overlooking the Black Mirror Pond and pagoda. (The Tea Reflection Room is located directly behind the White Pavilion).
Cost: Your contribution is most appreciated.
