    For what's it's worth…I have been in attendance at both showcases so far, (hoping to make this one as well) and had an incredibly wonderful time…thanks to all the musicians and performers taking part…in the interest of full disclosure, I'll mention that I have no affiliation with The House of Mercy or any of the performers, so this is more of a thank you than a plug….but I would make a plug.
