I, like many others, mourned the passing of John Lennon in December, 1980. Not unlike those sad times, Levon Helm of the The Band, passed today, and like the musical promise of John Lennon, unfulfilled, he will be missed for all he accomplished.
The new year, 2011, rolled around and while one may well wonder - will the the Turnage Foundation their financial ship - one could be at least thankful for the wonderful shows booked for presentation later in the year.
For the few years that the Turnage Theater did operate as an ongoing concern, they did book at least one Christmas show each year. In 2009, they booked, and I did attend "Christmas the Cowboy Way, featuring the Riders in the Sky.
