Blair ~ (Saturday special show at Circa 1890)

I've been behind on my blogging, so this is news that most-already-know. I would have gotten it out this morning, but, frankly, I wasn't sure how to put into words this past weekend's sad news:
Local award-winning poet, singer/songwriter and performer David Blair (known in the music scene for fronting Blair and the Boyfriends) passed away...
The Metro Times post
Words from one of Blair's many friends, Jay Carroll

And many many more words found on his facebook page.

There are musicians and performers around this town who wouldn't be doing their own thing now, if not for the influence or encouragement of Blair. Many of them will likely share some words, between brief live performances during this Saturday's The New~featuring Eleanora and Emilio Basa at Circa 1890 Saloon, a concert initially planned as a showcase for what was going to be BLAIR's new project, Reasons for Leaving.
