This morning I ate breakfast listening to Rodney Joe Smith at our Digett sponsored Boerne Chamber of Commerce Networking Breakfast at Enchanted Springs Ranch. Boy, Rodney can sing and play. It was a real pleasure.
I also had a pleasure to meet Lynn Myers: Guitar, Fiddle, Vocalist & Band Director of the Thousand Hills Cowboy Church Band. I love that ol’ Country Gospel music and I am looking forward to checking him and the band out soon.
This evening, I had a chance to sit down with Harley Dean and play some country bass lines from his album, There and Back Again. I like Harley’s songwriting and he has a great singing voice.
Next week, I’ll be at the Roots/Blues Workshop in Kerrville Tues – Thur. I’m looking forward to meeting Sue Foley, Thad Beckman, Steve James and the other instructors, and learning some new licks and techniques.
The Northern Lights will also be down from New England for the festival. I’m looking forward to meeting up with them. In 2003, I had a chance to share the stage with these great bluegrass players and the late Vassar Clements at the Elkhenge Music Festival in WV. If you are into authentic bluegrass, don’t miss their show.
Support Texas Music this summer – Its going to be a good one!
