Honest Music, Honestly Rendered 

Greetings from the Zoo!

I hope you liked Ry Cooder - or was it David Lindley - in my last blog. This week, enjoy David Lindley - or is it Ry Cooder - and his version of Blind Willie Johnson's "Soul Of A Man". 

I had the great fortune to meet (and learn from) David last spring at Jorma Kaukonen's Fur Peace Ranch. My sainted and long suffering wife enrolled me in his class on lap steel guitar as a birthday surprise. Not only was I blown away by the surprise and its attendant opportunity, I was amazed at David's friendliness, openness, accessibility, and genuine interest in his students. And Fur Peace Ranch? Well, if you ever get a chance to go - even to see a show at Fur Peace Station (the concert venue onsite) - run don't walk to do it. But that experience is a story for another time.

So, David Lindley, on what I believe is a bouzouki, playing a blues classic. Honest music, honestly rendered....

He's on the East Coast for 5 shows (weather permitting) <http://www.davidlindley.com/cgi-bin/dltourdates.cgi>

Wills And Won'ts on its way! 

OK, David Lindley and Ry Cooder aside, my new CD "Wills And Won'ts" is coming together! Album art is finished, media files have been uploaded, awaiting final proofs and ... well ... that little matter of paying for the thing. I hope to have the finished produce in hand by mid-February! In the meantime, check this out:

​​Ry Cooder. Vigilante Man

Hahaha! New Guy.... 

Yup - not David Lindley at all. No polyester in sight on this vid. Perhaps it's Ry Cooder. Why, yes, I believe it is Ry Cooder. Enjoy this too, and I promise a David Lindley vid soon. Or maybe not. I think I should go have myself a little lay-down....

Hello, and Welcome! 

Welcome, and thanks for reading! In this space I'll be posting thoughts, ideas, new lyrics, etc, and we'll also talk about the state of music - everything is open for discussion, but I'll mainly try to focus on acoustic/americana (although that's a big category these days!) and blues. Check in often, respond often, and let's discover stuff together!

Check out David Lindley's version of "How Can A Poor Man Stand Such Times And Live"
