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

This video doesn’t exist


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



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



Friends, Music, and Memories


Two days in an empty cow pasture-almost empty, except for surprises left by the cows, and a chance to turn it into something special.


600 of our closest musical, quirky, entertaining, interesting friends joined us there, for a chance to leave a lifetime impression on us all.
Camping in little caravans, tents, airstreams, motor homes, and the back of a station wagon.

We wait anxiously until noon, on the dot, before we are allowed to enter. Then the ‘mad’ dash to stake your claim in your usual spot. We had 12 of us in our compound this year. Four tents, the aforementioned airstream, and motor home, along with 7-I think- easy ups for shade, too. We outdid ourselves this year. Almost 40 feet of camping and music paradise.
It’s like a Motel Six of jamming and conversations til past midnight. Quiet coffee and breakfast in the cool morning. Catching up on recent past, and planning the weekend, and the future.

Jam, listen to the excellent musicians around us, and plan our set on the stage. Our big moment!



More jamming back at Biltmore compound, and trying desperately to stay awake, so it won’t be Sunday when you get up, and have to disassemble the dream, and head back home, loaded with wonderful images locked away, and happily anticipating the reassembling of the gang again soon!
