June 2019 Update

June 2019 Update Hello to all of you – According to Rogers and Hammerstein: June is bustin' out all over The feelin' is gettin' so intense, That the young Virginia creepers Hev been huggin' the bejeepers Outa all the mornin' glories on the fence! Because it's June... June, June, June Just because it's June, June, June! I guess you get the point. Since it is indeed coming on June 2019, that means that on the 6th of June we’ll all be observing the 75th anniversary of D-Day at Kevin Barry’s, 117 W. River Street, Savannah, GA 31401 912-233-9626. I’ll be appearing there for SIX nights this time around. Tuesday 4 June through Sunday 9 June. The 4th through the 8th, I’ll go on at 8 PM. On Sunday the 9th, I’ll go on after the session, (anchored by the Savannah Ceilidh Band) which runs from bout 6:30 – 8:30 ish. In re Kevin Barry’s: it just added three more accolades to its impressive collection. The Thrill List, The Daily Meal and America’s Best Online all recently named Kevin Barry’s Pub among the very top echelon of Irish pubs in the United States. But speaking of D-Day again, you might want to have a look at a program that was filmed to commemorate the 60th anniversary of D-Day. It’s called “The Long March of Bob Slaughter”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1H-NpZJRkhg. Bob was a pal of mine who was with the 116th Infantry, 29th Division and went ashore very early in the assault at Omaha Beach 6JUN44. He was one of the prime founders of the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, VA. We co-wrote a song from a poem he had written just after the war. It’s called “A New Dawn Forever” and it makes an appearance or two in the documentary. Now about that tome “Frank Tells Tales”: unbelievably, they’re still available, still only $10 at the gig and $11.50 by post. USPS rates may have gone up, but not mine. No-sirree- Bob (as Gabby Hayes used to say…starting to look a little like him, by the way) – not by a long shot. Just send a check to me and made out to me at the address below. One more commercial announcement before I beg off. I recently listened and re-listened to a new recorded-live CD by my old pal George Casey. He’s from West Clare, but he had and has nothing to do with the somewhat inexact timetable of that enterprise. He emigrated from Ireland and immigrated to the US in 1970 and has been performing in ever widening circles on land and at sea ever since. Oh, I neglected to mention that along the way some years back, George altered his act from folk singer to comedian. His resume is pretty impressive and stands in testimony to how really, really good he is. In addition, although his audience is an adult one, he is that rarity: a CLEAN COMIC! You don’t have to take my word for it, though. Have a look at his website http://www.georgecasey.com/ . You can learn about him, hear a sampling, see his schedule, buy his CD and even contact and book him, for crying eye! You can download and in some cases purchase a bunch of my music from a number of sources, including Youtube and also at Spotify, Apple iTunes, Google Music Store, Rhapsody, Deezer, Amazon, thru CD Baby or even at my website: www.frankemerson.com. By the way, I’m now looking to book engagements for 2020. It’s that time of year, don’t you know. So please spread the word if you or anyone you know might be interested. Thank you in advance for any consideration. Here’s a link to my Sonicbids EPK: https://www.sonicbids.com/band/frankemerson2/ I guess that wraps it up for this month. Drop a line or an email or a Facebook commo if you feel like it. I’m glad to start a conversation at any time. In case I don’t see you next week, I’ll look for you down the road. In the mean time, please join me in keeping in your thoughts and prayers those men and women who, for our sake, go in harm’s way at home and overseas. All the best always, Frank Frank Emerson 790 E.
