I can’t imagine what the two young women have been thinking since their scholarship auditions at the Delta Blues Museum on Thursday.  Jacquline Gooch and Paula Thompson, students from the Delta Blues Museum’s Arts & Education Program, were both outstanding.  Gooch, 19, accompanied herself on a guitar with a sliver of worn wood below the sound hole that looked like a scar.  I imagined the hours she’s played her instrument, writing her own songs and learning others.  Thompson, 15, stood with the microphone in hand and sang for a small audience of family and museum staffers.  Kyleen Thomas, 12, another museum student, played bass while instructor Daddy Rich played guitar for Thompson.  Rich, museum gift shop manager Chris Coleman, Berklee professor Lenny Stallworth and I judged the two singers and multi instrumentalists.  It’s hard to choose one of them when there are two talented and deserving hopefuls.

Estoy emocionado este semestre. He declarado mi Double Major, en MP&E (Music Production and Engineering) y CWP (Contemporary Writing and Production) y no puedo estar con más ganas. Precisamente hoy estoy estrenando el Bundle de programas que nos obligan a comprar al declarar el major, que es diferente según la especialidad que elijas, y realmente es increíble la cantidad de juguetes nuevos que tengo para experimentar. Estoy como un niño chico con sus regalos de navidad.
