James McCartney

We are headed to a concert to hear our friend
Katie Preston and James McCartney.
How fun will that be?!

Katie Preston opens the show at 8pm, followed by James McCartney!

From Yelp.com
Katie Preston Opens the Show @ 8PM!

Katie Preston used to entertain audiences with the beloved and now defunct group "Paul's Grandfather", aptly named after the character who played Paul McCartney's grandfather in the movie "A Hard Day's Night". Now embarking on other various musical endeavors, Katie will be playing solo this night to open for James McCartney. Or, one might even say, "Paul's Grandfather" will open for Paul's son ;)

"Preston will sooth and unsettle the senses -- miraculously all at once! Through her music, Preston channels the late Harry Nillson, Nina Simone and some other dead guy whom of which she's not really sure what he has to do with her music. Preston's music "builds a wonderful dark atmosphere devoid of hope but full of vigor nonetheless. It's a brilliant bit of songwriting with many layers, steeped in intelligence and a deep melodicism that's inescapable." (Wildy's World)

A song Katie wrote for her mother {our friend Debbie}:

I did not know Paul McCartney had a son. I am sure you are in for a real treat. Sitting back, relaxing, and enjoying good music...what could be better!
