Last week I finally traveled to the distant Northern lands of Cary, NC for some open stages. (Cary, in case you were wondering, is about a 90 minute drive from Fayetteville. This makes it Really, Really Far Away if you’re like me and hate driving anywhere after work.)
First I stopped in Fuquay-Varina at the Fainting Goat Brewing Company, where I met some lovely folks and sampled delicious cider. Then it was off to The Corner Tavern and Grill in Cary, where I got to experience an outdoor open stage for the first time. They asked me to come back and play on a live music night, which was nice! It’s always a self esteem boost when someone wants to listen to you play again. 😉
Since I’ve given up on performing every week, my new (slightly more realistic) goal is to make it up to Raleigh and/or Cary once a month. There are lots of places to visit. Despite the vast and treacherous distance, I was glad I went. And I look forward to going back!
