The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Transient, it seems

I have raved before about pianist/composer Catherine Marie Charlton, and when I'm not champing at the bit for a new CD (she's released three), I'm wondering what a CMC live performance might be like.

So I'm plotting a route for the World Tour, and it occurs to me: Charlton lives in Delaware. I'm going through eastern Pennsylvania and into New Jersey. Is there any chance she's playing while I'm there?

Well, yes and no. She's performing with The Brandywiners in a production of Me and My Girl at Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, a place I wouldn't at all mind seeing — but she's not playing.

She's dancing.

On one level, I feel rather strangely let down. On another, I marvel at how amazingly talented she must be.
