Further proof that the world is getting smaller (for me, anyway): Two friends will be performing in London next week–London, England.
One is an old friend Tom Brosseau, a Grand Forks native, whom I’ve known forever (and his parents even longer). Tom is part of the John C. Reilly & Friends company along with Becky Stark. They did a sold-out show at the Empire last year. With a little luck we’ll get them back in Grand Forks soon. In the meantime, John C., Tom & Becky are performing February 7 in London and later in Dublin and Glasgow.
Meanwhile, a new friend, the wonderful cabaret performer Stacy Sullivan is bringing her tribute to North Dakota’s Peggy Lee to London February 7 – 9. Stacy sang at the new Peggy Lee museum at Wimbledon and in Jamestown last year on Peggy Lee’s birthday. I met her at her show at The Stage in Fargo. I’ve noted here before how blown away I was by both her show and her PL tribute album “It’s a Good Day.” They loved Peggy Lee in London and they’ll love Stacy as well.
So it seems both Tom and Stacy’s stars are just beginning to rise.
