Already known for its Thursday Night Opry, Trinity Sanctuary Concerts has also been presenting special shows such as last night’s performance by troubadour Colin Gilmore. While Colin may have a bit of his father’s high & lonesome twang (legendary Jimmie Dale Gilmore) he certainly brought his own style of Texas songwriting to Savannah. Not only did his performance feel authentic, but also my interactions with him prior to, and after the concert showed gratitude & humility; exactly what makes some musicians ‘better’ in my eyes.
Savannah’s own Bottles & Cans, headed up by the one and only Ray Lundy, put on a fine opening set and seemed just as at home in the listening-room setting of Trinity as in any one of the spilt whiskey bars in which they normally spread their gospel. It would seem that everyone that plays Trinity comes away feeling well received and ‘at home’. The show was, as Ray is wont to say…’far out’!
