Nothing eventful to write about this one, just another good evening at the HA.

28 Jul

I used to play here years ago at least once or twice a year but it’s been at least five years since the last time. Amazing food and drink in a sophisticated intimate atmosphere. I played outside in the courtyard after a great dinner. It threatened to pour down rain but it did not and I had a great time playing for an all tourist dinner crowd and of course, for Linda… I still play an occasional show when she is not there but she usually is and it wouldn’t be the same without her.

26 Jul

Nice and hot in the upper nineties and yes I did work up a sweat before playing and during and after. I love playing at farmer’s markets, outside, with all kinds of people walking by and hanging. A good time.

It’s been fifteen or sixteen years doing sound and playing at this fine artistic event. This time we bought a digital antennae and got there way earlier than usual to set up a cheap tv so we could watch France win the World Cup before we had to get busy. We forgot the tv when we were packing up in a hurry to get home to our hungry imprisoned dogs and we got a phone call a day later from the Hockaday asking us if we left our tv. Pretty amazing that nobody grabbed it, I love Montana.

A very mellow evening playing my acoustic guitar. The story for this one is that we have about a foot and a half of snow on the ground and I didn’t shovel our quarter mile driveway yet because I am expecting a snowblower to arrive anyway now. So, I started moving all my musical gear from the house to where the car is parked at the end of the driveway with a wheelbarrow… The snow was too deep though, so I ended up making four trips carrying it. That’s not going to happen again.

A winter’s evening at the HA, I always enjoy playing here. Somebody complimented me on playing Cat Steven’s covers tonight. Cat Stevens’s or Cat Stevens’…..Not sure about that one…??? I didn’t play a single song by Ct Stevens, but I guess they assumed some of my originals were written by him. Since I really love his music, I’ll take it as a compliment.

I played to the crowd and got some feet stomping with a few bluegrass tunes that I don’t usually play. A fun day.

8/5/2017 Poverty Creek Festival, Rexford, MT

6 Aug

Perfect weather for some music outside. We do sound for this as well and it is a real treat to play through our large sound system. I love what subwoofers can do for an acoustic guitar.

This one was a loud and very fun evening!

7/14 and 7/16/2017 Arts in the Park, Kalispell, MT

17 Jul

Another year has flown by… I’ve been playing this great event for almost a decade and a half. Lots of familiar faces and foods and crafts. I always have a great time playing this one but like Bilbo Baggins, I have been feeling ready for a change. It might be time to play outside of the shire soon.
