Concerts on Bonnie Branch

David Glaser & Fran Snyder

Season Six kicked off with a full house for a fantastic pair of musicians, David Glaser and Fran Snyder. Local favorite David came on over from Annapolis while Fran came all the way from Kansas to perform at the season opener. No one was disappointed. We had a full night of music, stories and socializing. They each played short solo sets and then came back together to play in the round for the best part of the show. These two guys had never performed together and I'm glad to say they really hit it off. They backed each other up on most of their songs, and because they're both great musicians, it was as if they had been performing together for years. I have a feeling they'll be getting together again some time. As a host, it's always a great feeling bringing two musicians together for the first time and having it be a spectacular success.
