Fun Thanksgiving-themed guitar picks!
Time flies! One minute it is summer and the next, a deep freeze indicating that winter is not far behind. There are only two more shows left in 2019 so that means there are only two more chances to to shop for music gifts for your family and friends! Join us this Sunday, November 17 from 9 am – 3 pm at the Arbutus Volunteer Fire Department! A little bird (Janet) posted that for this show, all the tables are booked – a sold out show with 55 dealers from several states with tons of incredible music deals! This is a show not to be missed!
Admission is FREE and breakfast and lunch are available as you shop for those unique and special gifts for those special people in your life this holiday season.
We are so thankful for Frank and Janet who works so hard to keep the amazing show running. It just gets better and better every year and there many more to come. It also wouldn’t be the great show it is without the wonderful vendors and patrons who make it so special.
October’s show was “SPOOKTACULAR” and here are some of the fun finds!
We also found more great (some rare) country music for any of you love the genre and who saw the wonderful Ken Burn’s documentary this fall, Country Music.
There are many interesting and unusual items to be found. A theme was the stars of TV and films, some very unexpected who made albums or who graced album covers. Do you recognize these lovely ladies?
Did you know before he was a huge star on “The Carol Burnett Show,” Tim Conway did a couple of comedy albums with his friend, Ernie Anderson (much like the partnership of Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner). This album cover from 1967 likely took its concept from Herb Alpert’s hugely popular albums of the time that started with “The Lonely Bull.”
A wonderfully politically incorrect album we found was from the legendary actor Robert Mitchum who was legitimately a good singer and musician. In the great film, “Rachel and the Stranger” with Loretta Young and William Holden, he sings and plays the guitar.
It seems that anybody and everybody on TV in the 60s made albums. We know about William Shatner who was able to laugh at his own questionable “singing” talents but his TV partner and friend, Mr. Spock himself, Leonard Nimoy, also released a few albums and we spotted this one.
Then there was this gem! Elvis Presley Speaks – In Person! A rare 78 rpm, original 1956 Flexi-Disc. The playing surface was on a cardboard and fabric/silk material which was very unique for its time.
These are just a few of the amazing and fascinating items you can find at the show! We look forward to seeing you!
