Margaret Baker is a local treasure. She teaches, she performs, she writes, she does incredible drama workshops in the local schools, and her creativity knows no bounds. Her latest endeavor is to write, direct, and present a mirthful (and at times uproarious) play, called “The Pickers”, presented by the Pocahontas County Drama Workshop, and performed […]

David Wax Museum at Carnegie Hall

A rainy night in Lewisburg, but there’s music to be heard, something not the run-of-the-mill, something young and different. Something with a girl and an accordion. Something with a nice young man in a suit and his sweetly scruffy companions. David Wax Museum, fresh from just plain busting loose at last year’s Newport Folk Festival, […]

Marty Stuart & The Fabulous Superlatives

I’m completely thrilled and grateful to have been in the audience for the recent concert by country music performers MARTY STUART and the FABULOUS SUPERLATIVES.

Ben Williams & Sound Effect at Carnegie Hall

I can say that last night I saw a rising star among the others in the sky, while the moon rose over the fields, like silver in the darkness. I saw an amazing young musician and his jazz quintet presenting their music to a winter crowd; the gifted bassist Ben Williams and Sound Effect were […]

Lewisburg’s Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration. A Tradition Carrying on the Legacy

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Susanna Robinson Kenga

Lewisburg’s Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration. A Tradition Carrying on the Legacy I’ve been reading essays and looking at posters made by schoolchildren as their contributions to the upcoming Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebration. They are inspiring, idealistic, and innocent, from the mouths of babes, truly, and the message is pure. “I learned that […]

Carnegie Hall Welcomes Judy Collins by Susanna Robinson-Kenga

We traipsed to the packed hallway to hear a legend. I was grateful to be in the position to be writing about Judy Collins, a memorable voice from childhood and beyond. Collins, a piano virtuoso who, at 13, made her public debut performing Mozart’s Concerto for Two Pianos, but whose rendering of the folk genre’s […]

Patrick4CMPLTshrp "LBSPY is the best thing that has happened in Greenbrier County since I have been here for seven years. Maybe the whole state.... a first class operation and a lot of hard work," Patrick O'Flaherty (pictured above), The Irish Pub, Lewisburg, WV

Donating = Loving

LBSPY remains D.I.Y. in nature and it takes hundreds of hours a month to research and write, and thousands of dollars to sustain. If you find any joy and value in it, please consider making a one time or recurring monthly donation of your choosing, between a cup of coffee at The Wild Bean and a good dinner at Food & Friends
