raredance Using a music stand (102* d) RE: Using a music stand 05 Jan 03


The last two times I have seen Ann Reed she used a music stand. 15 years ago she didn't. Hers is a little box that clampls on the microphone stand. She has whatever information she needs on a stack of cards about 4 X 6. For the song currently being sung she sets that card up on end. The others lay in the bottom of the box. Some years ago at a John Gorka concert someone requested one of his songs that he obviously had not been doing recently. After the intermition he came out carrying a stack of the lyric sheets from his CDs. He proceeded to flip through and unfold the sheets until he found the song and then he sang it from the sheet. He must still have very good eyes, because I have trouble reading some of the CD inserts even up close in front of me. I wasn't put off by either of of these heretical events.
