OK, today we share a love story for the holidays.
A vibrant Irish baritone friend of mine, Sam McElroy, who sang a man's man's Winterreise here in Los Angeles a few years ago (with piano collaborator extraordinaire, Armen Guzelimian) and who also writes like an Irish Raymond Chandler, tells a charming story about how he met his inamorata, which music critic iconoclast Norman Lebrecht featured on his blog. You have to read it to believe it.
