Unique airport show in Chattanooga, Georgia shows with German band, Blue Alley

Hello Everyone!

My band and I have been busy lately playing some great festivals, and last month, we even got to play one in Georgia!  The Savannah Jazz Festival was a lot of fun, and it was good to see some old friends there.

We just got back a couple of days ago from playing the Daytona Blues Festival and we had a ball there. A special THANKS to all the folks who came to support us at these festivals and for all the kindness shown to us by the festival staff. We love playing for you all!

Last month I submitted several of my photographs at the Georgia National Fair and I ended up winning FOUR ribbons!  I received two first place ribbons, and a third and fifth place.  I’m so excited about my photography, and winning more ribbons! Next to music, I love taking pictures!

"Goats at the Gate" won a First Place ribbon

“A Gate of Goats” won a First Place ribbon

"Old Man" won a First Place ribbon

“Lines of Time” won a First Place ribbon

I have a very unique show coming up this Saturday at the airport in Chattanooga.  It’s a fundraiser for the Moccasin Flying Club, which supports several different charities. There will be a drawing for a free “discovery/sightseeing flight”, and attendees will have the chance to tour a private plane. It all sounds like fun, so come on out and join us!

Next week, I’ll be joining Norbert Fuhrmann and his German band, Blue Alley for several dates.  For five years I toured with them in Germany, but this is the first time they’ve been in the states to play some shows. I’m looking forward to joining them on stage in Georgia, and I can’t wait to see my German friends again!

A lot of you often ask about my goats and I wanted you to know they are doing fine. My little boys are turning in to quite the handsome young billys. They already have the nannys looking at them! I sure enjoy my goats. They’re good company, and lift my spirits, no matter what’s going on. I just hope the rattlesnake stays away from them!

That’s all for now. My upcoming schedule is below. Come see me when you can. And until next time, keep a song in your heart!

My photos won ribbons, Sippie’s still growing, New Blues Diva photos, and festivals coming up!

Hi All,

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!
