And now Part 11 of Road Trip!

The first hint for Dan was when Miriam asked him to check the tuning on her guitar. The first hint for me was when I was playing the last song of my set which was “The Times They Are A-Changin and Miriam was singing along – her voice was very high pitched, very loud, very nasal and slightly out of tune. And she was to be going on after I finished. I was somewhat sweaty and thirsty when I finished my set, so I grabbed a cold beer out of the cooler in the back room, and put my guitar in its case. Jan was talking to Miriam, who was ready to go on stage, and I could see a bit of apprehension on his face; smoking his pipe heavily, looking out over the crowded smoke filled room and nodding up and down as she was speaking incessantly and loudly to his face. I couldn’t  make out what she was saying, but she couldn’t wait to get on stage, that’s for sure.

So Jan walked to the microphone and said like Ed McMann introducing Johnny, “And now hhhhere’s

Miriam!”  She stepped to the microphone strumming the guitar heavily and loud and then her high pitched voice started singing “Blowin In The Wind” and didn’t stop at the end but went right into the next song and the song after that until after about a half hour she finished her set. The crowd rose to their feet in somewhat subdued applause – praising her for her duration rather than for her somewhat harsh and out of tune performance, it seemed. Yet, she was as proud as could be entering the back room – grabbed a beer from the cooler – and gave us a look like – there, I told you so, and then she sidled up next to a somewhat embarrassed Jan, who stood there like a statue, smoking his pipe.
