My photos won ribbons, Sippie’s still growing, New Blues Diva photos, and festivals coming up!
I’m headed out today to perform at a private party for the Chamber of Commerce and the Air Force Base. I’m really looking forward to that!
Last weekend I was performing in Jacksonville Beach, Florida at the Springing the Blues Festival, and what a great time my band and I had playing for all those blues lovers! The weather was perfect and the crowd was too. It’s a wonderful thing when you connect with your audience. It feels like magic, and it’s what keeps us “pickers” going.
Last month I did a show at the Crimson Moon in Dahlonega, in the north Georgia mountains. It’s always a lot of fun at that place, and the crowd and staff are always so good to me. The last weekend in March I was off to east Tennessee. I played at a great theater in Knoxville with one of my blues brothers, Roger “Hurricane” Wilson. We did some jamming and had a ball.
Then I was off to the Tropicana Room in Chattanooga, where several special friends came to be with me. My “roadies” in Ohio, Steve and Nancy Broermann were there, along with good friends from Nashville, Sunny Stephens and Patricia Childs, and very dear friends from Germany, Christa and Norbert Fuhrmann. In fact Norbert is the lead guitarist of my German band, Blue Alley. Needless to say, he and I did some jamming, and the fans seemed to really get into it. My co-writer Tom Horner was there and joined in the fun, too.
As you can probably tell, I’ve really been having a good time performing. It never gets old and only gets better! Thanks to all of you who come to the shows. You are the greatest!
I couldn’t wait to tell you this part too! I recently entered seven photos in a photography contest in Eatonton, Georgia for the Plaza Arts Center, and last week I took home 2 ribbons – one for second and one for third place!
You all know how much I love taking pictures. In fact, here’s my newest one called “The Blues Diva”. I have different versions of it. Which one do you like best?
Let me know what you think about these new photos! I’ll be waiting to hear from you!
And I couldn’t put a post on my blog without a picture of my goats! Here’s one of Sippie and Bluesie. They’re starting to eat regular food, and they couldn’t wait to get to the bucket, and they ended up turning it over!
And look how big Sippie’s getting! I love my babies!
I can’t wait to see y’all again down the road some time! Until then, keep a song in your heart!
