Treat Yourself....Lorie Line

There are times when I just have to hear Robert Plant Screaming "Whole Lotta Love" or Bob Dylan's unique take on life but then again there are times when I just want to let my mind wander with beautiful...I mean truly beautiful piano music accompanying me along the way.

That is when I listen to Lorie Line. Karen and I heard Lorie in 1996 or so on PBS during a pledge drive and were hooked from that point forward. We have now attended several years of her amazing concerts since then whenever she has made it to our area. She is George Winston, David Lanz and Liberace combined int0 her own unique style. Playing all types of music, sometimes Broadway...sometimes classical...other times standards and rock...anything she tackles is music at it's best.

These two photos were taken recently at her concert in St. Louis earlier this month. If you ever have the opportunity to hear her...don't pass the will thank me for it!

Thank you, Dan! These are beautiful photos...
I do not remember ever having heard her play...I am going to go to Pandora today and find her.
On the drive home from the university on Thursday, I needed some energy, so I listened to my favorite classic rock station. They were playing 3 for 3, and of course, there was a Led Zeppelin section. I've had Robert Plant stuck in my head since then. ;^) (Love him.) Do you listen to any of his recent recordings? Amazing...

I've missed checking in! SO nice to "see" you.
;^) ;^) ;^)

I'm going to look her up. What beautiful photos Dan. I love some Led Zep, but I know that I'll appreciate Lorie Line based on your post description.

Yes Cynthia...He seems to be making a comeback. I have seen him 3 different times lately in concerts. Have you heard his CD with Allyson Krauss? Strange bedfellows...hard rock and bluegrass but it works perfectly.
