Fracasso and 50 friends

Michael Fracasso played his heart out for a packed house at the Buttonwood Tree in Middletown last night. And I found out why the venue avoids concerts on a summer's night. As cool as the evening was, the tiny performance room, when packed with 51 bodies gets a bit steamy.

But that's all right when the music is good. And it was.

Fracasso pulled tunes from through out his career, offering originals from each of his extraordinary albums, several from his great new one Red Dog Blues, and even a lovely take on an old Stephen Foster classic, Old Susannah.

Lots of radio friends came out, and so did friends from Middletown.

Lucy and I had so much fun, we vowed to do it again soon.
