Mace Gill opens 'The Gate'

On Thursday, February 11, Mace Gill, The Bard of Somerset County, gave a special performance at Gaia's Gate in Hillsborough, NJ.

What a wonderful evening of music and fun! Mace's performance kept the audience enthralled as he played acoustic guitar and sang songs that ran the gambit of musical styles.

A versatile performer, Mace played a wide range of melodies, covering almost every style of music. Starting with renaissance tunes and some classical Bach, then moving on to folk tunes and blues rhythms, Gill captured his audience.

Mace's performance was enlightening as well as entertaining. Between songs, he provided history and background to many of the pieces he played, sharing the stories behind the songs, and describing the times and conditions under which the songs were written.

As the evening continued, the charismatic bard sang sea shanties, Celtic ballads, and even a little gospel music. He sang love songs and war songs, songs of far away lands and songs of home, all the while, encouraging the audience to join in. And join in they did. Pat Miller, the Gate's proprietor joined Mace for a lovely duet and the entire audience sang along as Gill played Cab Calloway's 'Minnie the Moocher' and Van Morrison's 'Brown Eyed Girl'.

In his final set, Mace really had the audience going as they sang along to popular classic rock tunes and songs from 1970's and 1980's television. We reminisced as we playfully sang tunes from schoolhouse rock and the theme from 'Gilligan's Island'. And the joint was really jumpin as we sang along to classic rock tunes 'The Mighty Quinn' and 'Take the Money and Run'.

Gill's performance was the most exciting and most participatory of The Gate's Coffee House Events, thus far. The Gate's coffee house events, held on the second Wednesday of each month, are steadily growing in popularity. With performers like Mace Gill, it is easy to see why. We look forward with anticipation to future events at Gaia's Gate. We certainly hope to see Mace Gill rocking the gate again.
