David Lee will be in Chapel Hill this Saturday, April 2nd, to accept the 2011 Brown-Hudson Award at the North Carolina Folklore Society’s Annual Meeting. Please consider joining us at this exciting event, at which David will perform two songs with his son-in-law (a total of sixteen members of the Lee family are making the journey to support David!) The awards ceremony begins at 2:45; attendance is free, but the NCFS asks that you register online.

The Bachelors hope to celebrate with you this weekend. In the meantime, enjoy the following heretofore unheard David Lee piano demo tracks, transferred from a cassette of home recordings. “Only You Can Make It Happen” is a relatively recent gospel number, and fans of Said I Had a Vision will recognize “I’ll Never Get Over Losing You,” albeit in an early rendering.
