Bunnies and Books

By on 4 April, 2012 in Karren Pell with 0 Comments

It’s that time again—the Old Alabama Town Revue is this Thursday night April 5, 7:00 in the Old Church in Old Alabama Town on Columbus Street. The theme recognizes the upcoming Easter holiday weekend and the upcoming Alabama Book Festival on April 21—also located in Old Alabama Town. Tim Henderson, Toni Wood-Meyer and yours truly will be joined by the fabulous Greta Lambert and writer extraordinaire Marlin Barton. A new addition to the revue will also premier: “The Pellets,” the most fearless five piece backup group in Montgomery (maybe the world).

In addition to songs about bunnies, the songs are loosely and wildly connected to writers and titles that will appear at the book festival. For example, Marlin Barton will read from his new book, The Cross Garden. To introduce him, we will play the the Alabama Troubadour song “Hell is Hot,” which is about the Miracle Cross Garden in Prattville. Since this year is the “Year of Alabama Food,” the book festival features many cook books and their authors. To recognize this momentous theme, Toni will sing “Dixie Chicken.”

Now I ask you—does it get better than that? Really, there is no limit to the fun and frolic that may hop up Thursday evening. Put on your Easter bonnet and hippity hop down the bunny trail to the Old Alabama Town Revue. You can’t miss it, they’ll be full of the decorations and eggs in the best rabbit cages you’ve ever seen, the team really gave it there all this year.
