Blue Suede Shoes

A few days ago, I went to the Abali market, a temporary souk, and I found a pair of blue suede shoes to use in our concert this week. Who would think I would ever find anything like this in Amman, but there are many weird and exotic things. We are gearing up for the six concerts this week with lengthy rehearsals. One more week and we will have completed the spring season.

The concert will have many Arab secular love songs, plus selections from My Fair Lady, Miss Saigon, songs from Hollywood movies, and a very moving Swahili song. It will be great fun. I'm even doing a little dancing - very little.

Anyways, I saw an Ammanian phonebook the other day and I almost picked it up to see if there were any Predmores listed in Amman and then I thought, "how foolish of me." This evening I received an email from a young woman named Amy whose last name is Predmore. Who would have thought this coincidence could happen.

  1. Blue suede shoes, wasn't this an Elvis Presley song?

    1. Yes, we are performing three songs from Grease so I had to go shopping for some colorful attire. The concerts will be a lot of fun.
