JUST SOUTH OF GIHON’S PUBLIC DEBUT

In February 2010, three songs from Just South of Gihon - “Metamorphosis,” “Who I’ll Be,” and “1929″ - were performed for the first time in a composer’s showcase at Belmont University. The concert starred Ben Laxton as Clyde Barrow, Maggie McDowell as Bonnie Parker, and Devin Clevenger as Frank Hamer, with Erik J. Christensen and Douglas Waterbury Tieman as members of the “1929″ ensemble. That night was also the last time “Who I’ll Be” would be performed as a song from Just South of Gihon – it would soon be replaced by “Carried Home.”
