Blue Heron

Hi there. Been a week or two… With all the celebrations of summer, and Independence Day, we’ve been busy.

We started this tune a couple weeks ago. It’s a Sarah Jarosz tune, Blue Heron, from her latest release. Loved it, from the first time we heard it. Our friend Mike August, (check out his YouTube page) added some killer mandolin, and vocals, to make it a really good tune. Hope you like it…

Goodbye, Al…

Our long time friend, Al, passed away a couple months ago. The time was right, last Sunday, to have a celebration/service/memorial, for him. Good words. Good tunes, in a way to honor, and remember him…

We played a tune, that we’ve done a hundred times before, mostly, with our amazing friend, Mike August ( check out his Youtube page ) . By Your Side… By the Everybody Fields… It’s what we wish we were, with our friend, Al… By his side…

Hittin’ the Backroads…

Hi

Been a week or two, but, w/ spring here, we’re doing more things, like playing music, between doing yardwork….

This is a tune, by the band, ‘Kickin’ Grass’… Good, no, great bluegrass band… We took a turn, for fun, on their tune Backroads. Our amazing friend Mike August joined us to spice it up…. Check his Youtube Channel… Hope you like it!!!

The Ferryman

Hi there… Sorry we haven’t posted anything since the end/beginning of the year… Been a lotta stuff happening… But, we’re fine, and, we’re back to posting, playing, doing….

Anyway, here is a video we did, to celebrate St. Patrick’s day… The Ferryman… About the people and land, round the River Liffey, which runs through Dublin Ireland… We first heard the tune in a 300 year old pub, when we were on a trip… Hope you like it…

You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere

Morning, kids… This… may be the perfect tune for our Covid Quarantine… We got the band together- Mike August, Gail Herrera, Elizabether Safley Brinker, Diane Poole, my lovely wife, Maggie, and Ernie Saunders- all amazing tune smiths on their own, and did a Dylan tune, ‘You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere’ (Easy Chair). Turned out pretty darn good, I believe… Hope you like it…

Itchycoo Park

Have loved this tune since it was released in 1967. Itchycoo Park, by The Small Faces. Steve Marriott, and Ronnie Lane. Marriott went on to start Humble Pie, one of the greatest hard rock bands in the late sixties, early seventies…Lane went onto The Faces- no, I’m not sure how that works either- with Rod Stewart…

Hope you like our version….
