Surely Tchaikovsky knows by now

This Sunday marked the Baptism of the Lord. The service at First Presbyterian Church in Whitestone saw the singing of “Down to the River to Pray” accompanied on the bodhran by a real amateur. Every bodhran player on the planet, and most every Celtic musician, rolled over. Beethoven may have done the same. Surely Tchaikovsky has heard by now.

Thanks to Rex White for the photos.

See you along the Trail.
