Bob Moore offers up an experience of love at TRTC with "So Far, So Good"
Thunder River Theatre is featuring local favorite Bob Moore in their upcoming signature cabaret show “So Far, So Good: The Music That Shaped Me”. The show aims to provide an eclectic mix of music in folk stylings, inspired by Moore’s experiences with different artists throughout his career. Here’s Bob Moore:
"I've been doing music since I was, uh, you know, knee-high to a grasshopper to quote a lot of what my grandfather used to say. But my mother got me started in music very early in life and, uh, it's been a part of my life as long as I've been here, nearly three quarters of a century, I might add. And the songs that I've chosen are ones that have shaped who I am musically and, uh, shaped who I am philosophically and they're songs that have meant a lot to me. So I get a chance to sing them to people that want to come and hear 'em and tell a couple of fun little stories involved with, uh, what they've meant to me and how I came across 'em, you know, tho those kind of things.
I think my opening song is one of my favorite songs to share with people. It was written by Mary Traverse of Peter, Paul, and Mary. It's called, the Song is Love and I would. That's pretty much my outlook on life. If all of us as human beings is have a little bit more of that, then I think the world would be a better place. And it's also a song that I learned early in life with some very good friends. A song that I sang at, uh, my wife and I's wedding when we were married 50 years ago, and it's a song that every time I sing it and I hear it, it makes me smile.
The, the songs that I sing mean the world to me. And if I can kind of transport that, uh, through my performance and into their ears and into their souls and into their hearts, then shoot. I've succeeded in what I wanted to do.
It's gonna be fun. There might be a tear or two involved, but you know, that's okay. That's all part of who we are."
That was Bob Moore, star of “So Far, So Good”. Performances are held at Thunder River Theatre on Sunday, March 19th and Monday, March 20th. Tickets and more information can be found here.
