Joe Negri at the Carnegie Carnegie

If you weren’t in Carnegie on Saturday evening, Oct 1, then you missed a really good show.  Each year the Andrew Carnegie Free Library and Music Hall in Carnegie (aka: the Carnegie Carnegie) holds a major fund raising event.  This year we did a special tribute to Joe Negri, one of Pittsburgh’s musical legends.  It was a great concert with big local names playing in the ensemble.  Joe’s voice has gotten a little raspy over the years, but he can still play that guitar as well as ever. After the show, there was a great party on all three floors of the facility.  The big names weren’t just on stage—  Elsie Hillman was in the audience.  Were you?

Turn up your speakers and watch this to see what you missed.  Special thanks to Bernadette for taking the pictures and putting together the slide show.  A talent in her own right.

  1. Thank you, Rick, for drawing attention. And thank you Bernadette for not leaving it all to the imagination…

    It was a magical night for the Library & Music Hall, for Carnegie and for me! And it should not go unremarked that Rick left the hospital Saturday following an emergency appendectomy the day before to be part of this memorable evening.
    Rick’s crazy devotion — he’s survived — is deeply appreciated!

    Well Mr. Rick, this was sooooo wonderful and I feel so bad that I missed that gallant event. Thank goodness for the person who took the beautiful pictures. I feel like I was there and the music was great!
    Thanks again for ALL of your efforts,

  3. Rick, thanks for the shout-out. Not quite the photos I wanted sans the good lens, but okay nonetheless. The venue and the performers would look spectacular no matter!
