Added to this mix are original songs like Tish’s “Ukulele Blues” and “My Baby”, Renee’s “Tell Me”, and Laurie’s “The Monk’s March”.

Alan MacEwen

For 35 years, Alan MacEwen has been the lead singer and guitar player for Washington, DC’s The Grandsons. His musical journey has included multiple recordings, travel to far-flung locales such as Europe, China, and El Salvador, and performances with legends like Ronnie Spector and Willie Nelson. His solo performances often include a cowboy song or two, some New Orleans jazz, old country songs, and even his own compositions. His audience-focused performances are always warm and engaging. It doesn’t take much provocation to get him to reach for his very first instrument, the trumpet, which he still loves to add into the mix.

Decades ago when Alan MacEwen stood in front of the chalkboard in 7th grade history class to give his oral report about the European Common Market, he was nearly frozen with stage fright. He eked out a generous ‘C’ from the teacher for the resulting fiasco. Fast-forward to the present, and you would never suspect this engaging, confident public speaker with a fancy degree from Duke University is the same person. Alan has been lecturing on the retirement community circuit for four years now and loves few things more than engaging with a curious and enthusiastic audience.
