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>
