Opening for the Proclaimers
Ah, the Birchmere. It's one of the best venues in the D.C. area, boasting an incredible list of past performers. Emmylou Harris, Dave Matthews, Mumford & Sons, and many, many more have all been on the Birchmere stage. I am honored every time I get the chance to play there, and on Tuesday, April 16th, I sang my songs there for the third time.
In short, the opener for the Proclaimers (of whom I have been a fan for years) ended up unable to make the show, and I was called in as a replacement. The night that followed was one of the best gig nights I've had. From meeting and being complemented by the Proclaimers to debuting a new song to having to sprint to the dressing room to grab more CDs for people to signing a ton of autographs, the night was a success all around.
Thank you Birchmere, thank you Proclaimers, and thank you, everyone who was there that night. It was an honor and a privilege.
