St. Vincent and Sarah Fisher Center: Windows of Opportunity

Sun., Dec. 28
phone 313.833.7935

St. Vincent and Sarah Fisher Center is celebrating 170 years of service to Southeastern Michigan this year. In 1929, Charles and Sarah Fisher added their name to the organization by rebuilding the residence which had been destroyed by fire. Part of the reconstruction was the creation of unique Mother Goose nursery rhymes depicted in stained glass windows for the kindergarten classroom, designed by Detroit Stained Glass and built by Fisher Body. Like the Center itself, these windows have stood the test of time and represent the Windows of Opportunity that SVSF is still providing to the residents of Southeastern Michigan. FREE

Harmonica Shah and Howard Glazer

Sun., Dec. 28, 6 p.m.
phone 313-961-2543

“Born in California, Shah also spent time in Somerville, Texas, with his blues harmonica and guitar playing grandfather, Sam Dawson. Dawson had recorded for both Alan Lomax and Duke Records. His mother, a beautician, encouraged him to be a salesman for Jet magazine in the latter part of the 1950s. This allowed Shah access to Oakland’s bars and clubs, where he heard musicians such as Lowell Fulson, Jimmy McCracklin, Juke Boy Bonner and Big Mama Thornton. Shah told Living Blues magazine that his grandfather’s passion for the blues inspired him. “Well see I picked it up from him, he’d be out in the fields singin’ all that (sings in a slow moan) ‘Tell me how long, whoa, tell me how long it’s been since you’ve been away from home’ Well, that’s raw! That’s a big damn difference from ‘Good Golly Miss Molly’”. Free
