A billet-doux to Friday. The Berkshires beckon. Lenox, in particular.
A fiercely popular place to fribble the day away. In addition to the bookstore, cafes, wineshop, restaurants, leafy lanes, library ~and, oh, the views! ~ there’s Tanglewood.
The grounds are pleasure-dome dazzling. Sigh-worthy lawns, mossy-soft music in the air.
The show? A Fan-my-brow Fabulous Foursome.
Al Van der Beek (producer/songwriter/fashionista), Steven Sharp Nelson (YouTube rockstar in a cellist-sort-of-way) on left; Jon Schmidt (pianist/songwriter), Paul Anderson (producer/videographer) on right.
Their story is a miracle. Just like their music. They are a bunch of ordinary guys that play classically-influenced instrumental music in profusely cool videos at spectacular places. And it all started in a piano store in St. George, Utah. (I wish I knew that when I was driving through it.)
..and especially here.
Your day just got better too, didn’t it?
