More on June Reunion/concert

...and then?April 25, 2002

Dear Friends:

I am writing to let you know about an exciting concert that I hope you can attend on Saturday, June 8, 2002, at 8:00 p.m. Julian Dawson, a British country/folk singer who is celebrating his 25th year as an international performer in 2002 with the release of his 10th CD “Hillbilly Zen,” will perform at Unity Temple, 875 Lake Street, in Oak Park, Illinois. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children under the age of 12.

I met Julian on September 11, 2001 when we were traveling from London to Chicago on United Airlines Flight 929. Due to the tragic events of that day we were diverted to Gander, Newfoundland and spent five days and nights together in a Salvation Army Church in Gambo, Newfoundland. Julian was easy to recognize. He is six feet six inches tall, as bald as Michael Jordan, and he was the only passenger who was successfully able to place phone calls from our aircraft on the satellite phone while we were on the tarmac for 19 hours! Only later did I come to know him as a wonderful human spirit with a great voice and a repertoire of over 2000 folk songs. Julian entertained our 200 passengers on a nightly basis and penned a song “Waiting for A Plane” to capture our experience in Newfoundland.

I was thrilled when Julian e-mailed me and asked if I could arrange a venue for him to perform in Chicago as part of his United States tour. Unity Temple is a Unitarian Universalist meeting place that was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It has excellent acoustics. Julian is just completing a tour of Germany where his songs are quite popular and is hoping to build his U.S. following. On his recent CD he collaborated with Grammy Award winner Lucinda Williams on two tunes and I urge you to check out his music at his website www.juliandawson.com. If you click on “Songs” and have an MP-3 player you can listen to a variety of his songs.

I hope that you will be able to join me on June 8th to hear Julian Dawson in concert. Please call me at (312) 422-7700 Ext. 233 for tickets or information or e-mail me at dburke6945@aol.com.

Yours truly,

Dan Burke
