Gospel at Colonus in St Paul!
August 5 2010
The Raven is in St Paul Minnesota this week to help run sound for The Gospel at Colonus!
(See his June 2008 archives for our last show in Athens!)
It's such a fantastic show, featuring the Blind Boys of Alabama (5 time Grammy winners), the Original Soul Stirrers, and the Steele Family. Plus some excellent actors and a knock-you-out choir.
We had a week run there.
Here's the Raven checking out the stage - the wall is a rebuild of the original Roman theatre we performed in in Athens.

The Raven checking out the evil eye protector we hung on the sound board.
I'm sure glad The Raven understands this fancy digital soundboard, because I sure don't!
An empty stage awaits the performers.
Time for a beer after a day and night of rehearsal.

Checking out the cathedral that was built starting in 1903.
Back to rehearsals.
The Raven was probably a performer in a former Raven life.
Opening night crowd!
And next is the Edinburgh International Festival! We head over the pond next week!
