Sierra Park Pro Development, LLC 749 Lee Road, Suite A Quincy, CA 95971 reenville The song goes, "Heaven is right here, if we're doing it right." This song was the 2014 first-place winner of the new song category for gospel music at the prestigious MerleFest Music Festival in North Carolina, and may someday be a standard of bluegrass-gospel music. "Black Grace" confirms the reality that bluegrass gospel music is not a static entity of music only written long ago, but is alive and vibrant as an American music form. Bluegrass connects us with our heritage while speaking to our present realities and dreams. Perhaps the most surprising song of the performance proved to be the melancholy tale of "Bill the Champ." The song describes the part factual, part fictional story of a chimpanzee who was once in a circus sideshow boxing act. Bill spent the later years of his life at the zoo in Eureka, where Melody attended college. "Bill the Champ" is both a complex piece of music and a complex story, which Walker and Groopman performed brilliantly. Walker's lyrics paint a story in broad strokes that is filled with compassion, and some sadness. Her poetry employs keen insight into the possible human-like emotions that Bill the Champ might have had during his life. Efforts are already underway to bring Melody and Jacob back to Indian Valley, possibly as early as later this year. Please look for notices about future 2015 Gift of Music events, and plan to get your tickets early for the next show. It will probably be a standing-room-only event.
