Matters of Graves Importance: Entertainment all weekend at Feast of the Flowering Moon



It is no secret to folks that I wear many hats in life. On any given day you can find me working at least three different types of gigs. Nothing and I mean nothing terrifies me more than being at a nine-to-five professional event and hearing someone I don’t know say, “I’ve seen you perform comedy before.” My mind immediately starts rolling through show audiences trying to recall their face in my memory. At that point, the interaction always moves in a different direction…by my directing. It is like being in my own personal eclipse but without canceling schools or closing businesses. It is scary for a few minutes, everything goes dark, but eventually the conversation comes back around. Great entertainment is becoming the norm in Chillicothe. Check out these upcoming happenings.

The Feast of the Flowering Moon Main Stage

All weekend you can find great music at the Feast. Friday features Greg Higley at 8 p.m. On Saturday you can find Mackenzie Mash, Yoctangee Fire, and Moose Miller in that order from 2:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. Sunday, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., the stage features Zion Baptist Praise Team, Ashley Huffer Trio, and 7 Miles Bluegrass.

On May 29, 2015 my earliest version of this column, La Vida Lori, was first published. Shout out to then CG editor Mike Throne for taking a chance on me when no one else in Chillicothe would. All anyone else could see was a loudmouth comic who said bad words on and off stage but Mike saw past that. He knew I had more to give to our community. I will always be grateful to him for allowing my voice to be heard in print.

Until next time. I hope to see you out laughing.
