With these opening lines to his copyrighted song "Menifee Alma Mater," singer and songwriter Paul Burleson will pay tribute to his hometown to kick off the festivities at the Arts Council Menifee Showcase this Saturday, May 19, at Countryside Marketplace.
Burleson, a Menifee resident since 2005, will serve as master of ceremonies for the performances by local artists at the north stage of the food court, one of two stages to be used during the event. In addition to performing his Menifee "theme song" and presiding over the entertainment from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Burleson will take the stage himself at 12:30 p.m. to perform portions of his "Gold of Old Show."
A musical performer since the 1980s, Burleson has long been performing his tribute to the Old West in Southland venues. His Gold of Old show, featuring such Western classics as "Cool, Clear Water" and "Ghost Riders", illustrates Burleson's talent and dedication to the preservation of the American West.
"Menifee Alma Mater" is simply the latest addition to his repertoire.
