12/22 Raleigh NC

Recommended Posts

Is this the venue where everyone is supposed to be waving their lighted cell phones?

And just one or two people politely clapping when Clay comes back out.. :D I could feel that through my keyboard.

"Claymates will kick your tail" -to a flasher. You go on with your pissy self Mr. Aiken.

I think the applause is more for what Beverly does in the play...she puts the ornament in Tommy;s backpack...and I think that is what the reaction is for.

Usual spiel about freinds being family...

oh papa left during MGUCL but came back now...

he was challenging people to buy WJ's cd and make the line wrap around the stadium as they wait for WJ to autograph their copy...

intro of dancers...Gregory intro...huge applause of course...Gregory shout outs to people from his school...his teachers...grandparents from Canada...Gregory;s brother is part of the show.

Allison intro next...spiel about his teacher...was getting tied tongue again...

Allison shout outs...brother and wife...ballroom dance teacher and lots of friends...then the community theater where Allison is from was also introduced.

Quiana getting huge applause...then angie is next lots of reaction when she came out...she did a typewriter move and Clay tried it I think

then the stage crew...

he is talking to his grandfather...said that his papa always wanted him to sing a bluegrass song...he sang O Beautiful star of Bethlehen for his pappy...

Aww...he said even if he did leave to go to the restroom...sounded great..its is so strange to hear Clay sing in this style...OMG Bluegrass is also very popular here. We even have bluegrass festival during summer...

then I think he said go back to bed?

then he had to tell Andy to start...he said giving you a cue...but you ahve to replenish something...

made people turn to each other to give them a hug even if they are strangers...

DSIAFCD...

What was the typewriter again? wasthat the wiggly dance? He made Angela do it for his Christmas present.

Aw his grandfather wants him to sing a blue grass song.

Didn't Clay's Great grandfather and great Uncle get recorded for the Smithsonian historical folk music collection?

He even did the falsetto...Love it...

Oh. Mah. God.

That bluegrass song was outstanding. Can't wait to hear it, and let my husband listen to it...he'll know it. He LOVES bluegrass, and from what I'm finding on the net -- the original artists, The Stanley Brothers.

And then...the falsetto note on DSIAFCD! EEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Stick a fork in me, I'm done.

ldyjocelyn, think we could get him to sing Man of Constant Sorrows? Or how about a duet with Allison Krause?

Some groans from the certers for Good News - don't know if that was an indication of flashers or emotion.....

I leave you with Good News---indeed.

OK, here it is - not smithsonian.

The Alan Jabbour Duplication Project Collections

Alan Jabbour recorded Henry Reed as part of a series of recordings in the Upper South, 1965-68. Jabbour was a graduate student at Duke University at the time, and used his own equipment, supplies, finances, and time to record Henry Reed and other fiddlers on nineteen 7-inch reels taped at 7.5 ips (inches per second).

The original recordings remain the property of Alan Jabbour, but in 1967 and again in 1969, he brought the tapes to the Library of Congress for duplication in the Recording Lab of the Motion Picture, Broadcasting and Recorded Sound Division and accession into the Archive of Folk Song (now the American Folklife Center's Archive of Folk Culture).

Because the tapes were accessioned in two batches, there are actually two Alan Jabbour Duplication Project collections: LWO (for Library Work Order) 5031, encompassing AFS series 13,031-13,037; and LWO 5379, AFS series 13,703-13,709.

LWO 5031

Accessioned in June 1967, LWO 5031 consists of seven 10-inch reels at 7.5 ips (approximately fourteen hours of sound recordings), containing instrumentals performed on banjo, fiddle, guitar, hammered dulcimer, and harmonica, recorded in North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia by Alan Jabbour, October 2, 1965-April 1, 1967. The collection includes one linear inch of manuscript materials, including fieldnotes, logs, and tune transcriptions.

The performers featured in this series are: Joseph Y. Aiken, Romie Aiken, D. M. Andrews, Andrew Bennett, Lester Brooks, Maurice Carden, Kemp Chambers, Tinsey Clapp, Harlan Coble, William Alonzo ("Lonnie") Corsbie, Harry Dixon (Dickerson), Ed Hall, Albert Eli ("Uncle Abner") King, John Lewis, Vaughan Marley, Ross Miller, Fred Phillips, Kilby Reeves, Earl Shatterly, and Edsel Terry, of North Carolina; Oscar and Eugene Wright, of Princeton, West Virginia; and Henry Reed, of Glen Lyn, Virginia.

*dies*

That would be heaven. He'd kick tail on that song, or a duet with Allison.

Some groans from the certers for Good News - don't know if that was an indication of flashers or emotion.....

I thought I heard a few screamers. GRRRRR.

The ribbon board at the RBC (where there is scrolling messages) ran "celebrate him home" when Clay came out for the introductions. That's cool. Really cool.

What an emotional night this has been. It sounds like Clay really felt the love of his fans tonight. I hope he knows those of us who weren't there were sending all our love his way too.

---

sang last two notes behind the curtain....

Stunned audience.. . They are, seriously, speechless

---

Cellcerter says papa was smiling broadly and teary while Clay sang Beautiful Star of Bethlehem.

---

Papa was crying and cheering during his bluegrass song....

At the end of DSIAFCD he called Allison over and he was hugging on Allison and Gregory....Gregory had a reindeer nose on.

flashes during GN, crowd reacted and Clay seemed to tell the crowd to let it go with his hands.....some screamers during GN that I didn't hear....

---

This gal has won Stub Hub 2 times.....she said he was in great spirits and looked wonderful!

The stream is still on....they are going to try to find the busses or at least where th'ey are leaving from...
