February 28 Relative Pitch Recap (video)

Best. Show. EVER!  The first show of 2015 was definitely one for the books and one that made me extremely proud. We had participants from the ages of 3 to 17, many first timers, several instrumentalists, and the ladies ruled the evening.

First up was 13 year old Abby singing a soulful cover of “Somebody to Love” by Queen, accompanying herself on guitar:

Next was McKenzie, a Relative Pitch regular, performing a jazzy take on Erykah Badu’s “On & On”:

The Lang Sisters (visit their site HERE), whose past gigs include Raleigh’s First Night celebration, blessed us with their harmonies and superb guitar picking skills on two selections:

Next, another first timer, Brynn, and her father Rob performed a sweet cover of “Riptide”:

Finally, adorable 7 year old Violet gave us an impressive acapella performance to close out the show:

It warms my heart to see so many kids (especially girls) playing instruments and working on their musicianship. I hope that you will join us for our next Relative Pitch Open Mic, scheduled for May 9.  Thank you again to Sola Coffee Cafe for being so accommodating, I think we’ve found a perfect fit there!!!  Until next time…
