As a concert-goer you always hope to see one of those performances that you can talk about for years. I’ve seen many, and I have been talking about them for years.
As many concerts as I have been to, and as many violin players as I have seen, not one of them has made themselves the center of attention. Even those that were a bit “showy” were not the in the mainstream of the play. Their performances were lovely, moving, soulful and definitely meant to draw an emotion from you. But they were not the center of attention.
The concert in the video below is one of those performances you will be talking about for years. And the young woman at the heart of it all plays the violin, in quite a dramatic fashion.
While you never see Charlie Daniels jumping around onstage and dancing wildly, this woman does. She is the lead of the song, and all the players are supporting cast.
The drumbeat is solidly playing in the background, never missing a lick. The guitar players and organist are all right there, dancing and moving around as guitar players do, but they are still not the center of attention. The amazing violinist is the star of this show.
At the end of this performance you feel exhilarated, happy, ready to go out and have a party in the streets. This is the way music and concerts should make you feel. The audience shows their appreciation.
SHARE the love and pass it on!
