“Music is woven into the fabric of own little town Savannah, GA,” says Diane McCray, innkeeper of Green Palm Inn, a top-rated Savannah bed and breakfast inn in the Landmark Savannah Historic District. She writes more of what promoted her comment.
Four comrades, all musicians in their own right, came to stay here at the Green Palm Inn. Their ring leader, Bill Livonias, gave me a CD entitled “Remember Me“. These are songs by Richard Faith in which he and his partner, Kurt Ollman sang several of the songs accompanied by the composer.
Don’t you just love it — here in Savannah GA, Green Palm Inn’s little bed and breakfast, and modern day musicians!!! And, songs — “The Lake Isle of Innisfree (William Butler Yeats), “The Wild Swans at Coole”, “The City in the Sea”(Edgar Allen Poe), and “So We’ll go no more a roving”(Lord Byron).
Not only that, but Bill was given a piece of sheet music, written some years ago by Roy Blackburn entitled “Ballad of Savannah”. He contacted the local Savannah historic society to give it to them for a very worthwhile historic significance.
Roy Blackburn is a small town, local forgotten musician who Bill generously wanted musical Savannah to remember. What a nice gesture!
The weekend was extremely productive. We talked about the music in our small town. We heard lots of music in our little Savannah, GA. I received a CD with some of my guests’ talents displayed. And, I was able to capture a picture of the musical score donated to our local history keepers.
All in all another wonderful day to remember at our little Savannah bed and breakfast inn!
