One of the biggest treats Claudine and I get at the Carriage House Inn are the impromptu musical events that occur out of the blue, unplanned and unannounced. Over the past five years we’ve experienced a bluegrass breakdown on a snowy winter evening, a folk hootenanny on a midsummer eve, a mother and daughter violin mini-concert, and some old time acoustic rock and roll. We’ve even had a bagpipe performance (thanks, Sandy Wallace!), and others too numerous to mention. We enjoy every moment of music that has wafted out of our dining room and parlour, and look forward to the next surprise musical interlude.
This week, musical lightning struck twice in a 10 hour period. A guest who recently moved to the USA from China shared some Chinese folk songs on the twelve string guitar, as well as his rendition of “Country Roads” The following morning a young woman from northern Germany played about 20 minutes of variations of jazz keyboardist Gary Burton’s “Times Like These” on the piano.
And at times like these, the Carriage House Inn really does feel like home. So when you are ready for your next travel adventure, come and stay with us…..you never know what unexpected delight you might come to experience here!
