Dear Coastal Cohorts Everywhere!
We want to thank the thousands of you who tuned in to our December 9th-12th streaming events, the 35th Anniversary Celebration of King Mackerel & The Blues Are Running. Our deep thanks go, too, to our Cohort-collaborators at the Splinter Group in Carrboro, NC, who ramped up and operated the technical machinery for the shows, and who publicized them widely as well.
Though we weren’t able to take the stage IRL (in real life) this season, we were glad to be able to mark the occasion and, through the shows, make some contributions to our fisherman’s friends at Core Sound Waterfowl Museum & Heritage Center; NC Coastal Land Trust; NC Nature Conservancy; and NC Coastal Federation. We love and count on these all-important conservation/preservation institutions and all those who lead and guide them in their very important work.
Like everyone in music and theatre who cannot wait to get back on the boards, we very much hope to schedule some King Mackerel performances in 2021 and beyond, and when we do, please be assured that future stagings will be no secret.
Meanwhile, as we Coastal Cohorts say as we read the Wright Brothers’ triumphant, December 17th 1903, first-flight telegram in our show:
Warmest holiday wishes to you all, from us Coastal Cohorts down at the all-decked-out Corncake Inlet Inn,
Don Dixon, Bland Simpson & Jim Wann
