This past Sunday, we had the pleasure of seeing Maura at The Ark once again. My husband and I had planned to go with a couple friends, but we found out Saturday that our babysitter couldn't watch the kids. Since the girls had no school on Monday, we decided that this would be a wonderful opportunity for them to see Maura sing.

John Mock opened the evening, and topped the last time I saw him open by playing four different instruments. We took the opportunity to pick up his latest album.

Maura's set began with some sound issues - John's guitar cut out after the first verse of To Bet the One. No matter - while that was fixed, Maura sang The Water is Wide beautifully.

From what I can recall, here are the songs that she sang (in no particular order, except the first and last couple):

To Be the One
The Water is Wide
Spinning Wheel
No Place to Hide
Love You in the Middle
Blue Train
Down By the Sally Gardens
A Far Cry
Shades of Gloria
Western Highway
Feet of a Dancer
I Know My Love
Weakness in Me
Poetic Justice
Trouble in the Fields
Blue Chalk
Crazy Love

After the show, we had a chance to chat (although I felt guilty monopolizing Maura since there were a lot of people waiting for their chance to meet her). Even though my girls (who are 6-1/2 and almost 9 now!) were pretty sleepy by the end of the night, I am happy that they had the opportunity to have their first show at The Ark be a concert by Maura. :D Thanks for all of the memories over the years!

Thanks for telling us about the show. It sounded great, and a nice sampling of the songbook! Happy for you guys.

I think Maura did "Feet of a Dancer" for your girls! I have two girls (much older) and always loved to hear that song and think of my daughters.

We are truly lucky to have the pleasure of Maura's music to get us by over these many years. A gift!
