    A contractor friend of mine, a devout Christian, bought VIP seats for seven of his friends to go see Phil Keaggy and Fernando Ortega at a local church. We were in the second row of a very nice concert hall in a brand new church. The stage setting was very simple and intimate.

    I was a little concerned that this might be an entre into a path to my salvation, but I had heard good things about these performers, so I went to the concert anyway.

    I have to say I enjoyed it immensely. The music was very uplifting, although I'm not connected at all to the lyrics, and there was a nice contrast between the styles of the two performers. In all, an excellent concert.

    Don't worry, though. I left with my heathenism intact.

    Ha. I went to a cousin's funeral and when I walked int he door I looked down at myself and proclaimed amazement that I hadn't burst into flames. My cousin's fiancé and the preacher weren't terribly amused. Wait, did I say funeral? I doubt they'd find that funny either.

    Nothing wrong with enjoying music at a church. The church my parents used to drag me to had a pipe organ and a musical director who was a huge baroque nut. Before the services he'd start playing amazing pieces (meaning once the service started I was ready to leave!)

    I love pipe organs. I'll even go into a Catholic church to hear one (my wife is Catholic). When the service starts, I think about TalkBass.

    It was great ... we were sitting about 15 feet from him.
     
  19. Nine-fingered Phil Keaggy.... he's very creative and melodic... I've never seen either one live, so you've witnessed something very special for sure.

    Phil Keaggey is a great guitarist/performer (sometimes he sings like Paul McCartney). Fernando Ortega is also a great singer. Though having different styles, it must have been something to see them in the same concert.
