MMN on the Red Carpet!

This afternoon, I attended the GRAMMY® Special Merit Awards, which include Lifetime Achievement Awards (for performers), Trustees Awards (for non-performers who have contributed to the recording field) and Technical Awards.

I had been hoping to meet André Previn, who was this year’s Lifetime Achievement awardee from the classical realm. Health issues prevented him from attending, though; he sent a video greeting that was played during the ceremony.

Instead, I got to chat with blues guitar player David “Honeyboy” Edwards, another Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. At age 95, he is still touring — he performs 100 shows a year!

Oh, and yes, I did get to walk the red carpet:

Background of the stars!

I’ll have more from this event later, but tomorrow is the Big Show, and I’d better get my beauty rest! 😀

  1. Awesome, Linda! The Honeyboy interview is priceless!

  2. Honeyboy Edwards, huh? I am duly impressed; one of the finest Chicago blues stylists.
