The Final PCOM Gazebo Concert for 2016 Rings Abell
by Paparazzi Paul.
was a quiet afternoon as the soothing breeze touched the trees and
the grass that encircled the Gazebo on Sunday August 28th
at The Presbyterian Church of the Mountain in Delaware Water Gap, PA.
A whisper rode upon the breeze and was heard by all those who were
intent on hearing it. It bade a thoughtful farewell to the 2016
concert series as it was the final one for the year and its echoes
touched the gathering with its contemplative voice. It was at
the appointed hour did the
church's host, Jim
Dellaria, stepped upon the gazebo's stage to welcome the gathering
and to introduce the musicians.
Matt Abell Trio consisted of Skip Detrick on Percussion, Rob Victory
on Ukulele Bass, and Matt Abell on Guitar and Vocals. The gentle
tonal qualities of the trio flowed upon the large audience creating a
refreshed experience for each member. The original compositions that
were presented held a familiarity to them which was embraced by one
and all. This familiarity rose up from the eternal essence of
human-hood that connects our thoughtful, humorous, and transcendent
natures with one another. Hot dogs, cakes, and other treats were
consumed during a break and were enjoyably digested as the music
resumed. The concert came to its conclusion as the trio shared a
haunting melody that would linger in the soul of each member of the
gathering until the the series returns in 2017. You’ll
