Historic Family Ties and Innovative Music Performance

This past weekend I traveled to Thurmont, Maryland, to meet some distant relatives.  One of whom 'found' me online and invited me to the family gathering of descendants of Johann Daniel Weller (1677-1761).  Although the weather was gross, we were able to see several historical locations in and around town, including the graves of my 6th great grandfather and grandmother who were original settlers of the area.  I will be sure to share some of what I learned and saw soon.  I'm still recovering from the weekend.

In the meantime, please take a moment to sit down and relax to the sounds of this multi-talented cellist. Thanks Stephen for sharing this link on FB.
