Ky Ukefest

Last weekend, we went on a three day adventure, to Lexington Kentucky, for the KY Uke fest, with our friends, Mike and Ann… Fun road trip.

At the Puccini’s, in Lexington…

Saturday morning, we had classes, met friends, made new friends, and all in all, had a great time!!

Got to hang w/ Pete McCarty, Mim, and Marc Gallagher … Sort of a ‘meet and greet’ for GNUF

Saturday evening, after the concert, there was an open mic at Goodfellas pizza… We got to do a couple tunes. Mike made us sound great, and Pete documented it….

Our take on Claire Lynch’s   ‘Further in the Hole…

 

Good times….

Willow 2019

Well, we’re home from another amazing cow pasture/hay wagon musical adventure. Had a great time, as always, with good friends, good food, and great music…

Wanted to share a few videos and photos from the Adventure…

Always a favorite, and Mike (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdMeXz5BCizOf6oQojlv43w )  tears it up, on harp…

 

Sweet Pea, is a fun tune… Part blues. Part ‘old timey’

 

One of my favorites…. Nat King Cole set a standard that can’t be touched, but, we touched the song….

 

 

We were lucky enough to play with the amazing ‘Tommy Gun’ (Tom Gowan) and the always percussionistic Dr Brad

 

Then, we did Losing My Religion, after ONE practice… Not too shabby…!!

 

 

A few assorted pix….  Again, good times….

 

 

Our version of Light My Fire

Sitting on the back porch on Sunday, with my ukulele. I thought that, well, maybe, we should noodle outside, with a tune that I’ve played with forever. Did my uke part, then, grabbed my guitar, and decided to go full bore  in the sun. Hot…. Sent it to the amazing Mike August, who, added the good stuff…

It was just a noodle/test/jam, but turned out nice, for an impromptu shot…
