Doug and I had a very fun road trip to Chicago. Lin and
Carol did a fantastic job at putting together the house concert, the audience
was wonderfully attentive, the middle eastern food a delight, and the jam with
Barbara and Patty a gas.
We are celebrating one year at Dunn Bros with a celebration of John Lennon's
music. That would be Wednesday December 7th. Many thanks to all the
performers and listeners and hanger outers that have spent the past with us.
Next road trip is in February to Phoenix.
Doug Jungemann has been joining me
on stage for my shows and will be be as long as he likes.
Doug plays a sweet barking harmonica and adds vocal harmonies on many a tune.
Being on stage by myself just wasn't much of a thrill for me. Amy and Joe, two
fine bass players,
have joined me at shows this past summer and hopefully will again.
Next thing I'll be switching to electric guitar and adding the drums.
The Wednesday night open mic is a whole lot of
fun. Go to www.acrossroads.com for all
the details. A thousand praises to Ken Jones for making this site happen.
I had an amazing sonic excursion last Saturday with Amy Geiske and Doug Jungeman
at the Flat Iron Coffee Bar.
Doug is a regular at Dunn Bros. He plays a fine harmonica and can
sing pretty darn good as well. Amy plays bass with the Jeff Finlan Band out of
Ft. Collins CO. Well we just flew to the moon and back a few times.
Later we retired upstairs to our sprawling
suite. Gloria cooked us some mighty fine pesto pasta and we hung pontificated
over a few bottles of red wine into the wee hours.
Sometime in February
I'm hosting an open mic every Wednesday at
Dunn Bros Coffee.
Musicians, poets, storytellers, all performers are welcome.
I've got a new address, same phone # and
