NQC 2010: Day 1
I am planning to head up to Louisville on Wednesday, so the plan is for (my) eyewitness accounts of the National Quartet Convention to start then. If Sony (who contributes our Sunday posts) has time to log on today, she’s planning to post about opening night. In case she doesn’t make it, here are a few of the highlights, culled from around the ‘net:
- Tracy Stuffle was able to join the Perrys for the last two songs of their set yesterday. He set up the closing song, “If You Knew Him,” with a testimony about his heart attack / diabetes issues and recovery. Word has it that was among the strongest responses of the night.
- A Canadian group called The Hunters attracted quite a bit of attention by doing backflips on the mainstage.
- Via Nate Stainbrook, Legacy Five’s Scott Fowler made a very gracious gesture to Gold City and to former L5 tenor Josh Cobb: He came down to the artist circle during Gold City’s set as a visible sign of support for Cobb’s return to the genre. Cobb left Legacy Five suddenly after NQC 2000, and had been out of the genre until earlier this year.
