Stars in (and from) the valley

Friday's Life previewed the Jazz series at the Belleayre summer festival in Highmount.
Four-time Grammy Award-winner Dianne Reeves, performed at the festival.
She was featured in the 2005's "Good Night and Good Luck," and got a Grammy for the soundtrack.

The movie was about journalism hero Edward R. Murrow, who died at his home in Pawling in Dutchess County. If you don't know who he was, Harvest of Shame on you (just Google his name, you'll be amazed).

The actor who played him was Dutchess County's Edward Strathaim, who got an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of the CBS newsman.

We live in a blessed land, indeed.
