Music For The Soul - Day 1

Old friend Normie Hein was diagnosed with inoperable Stage 4 liver cancer back in November. Sandy and I have shared snowmobile and motorcycle experiences for thirty-five years but we never shared his love of local musicians. They sure appreciated him, though. This evening was the first of two segments of Music For The Soul, a fundraiser for Maison Vale Hospice in Norm's honour.

Tonight, Jopo and the Rize, Sulphur City and Larry Berrio entertained us. The crowd represented many different segments of the community. Freedom Riders were strongly in evidence.

The music was good and the vibe was better. Sandy didn't even want to leave until after midnight. There was a surplus of Love Honour and Respect flowing Normie's way all evening.

Part two will take place here Saturday afternoon.
