So…I’m doing this Musical Getaway in Costa Rica, March 3-10, 2012. It’s not a cheap gig to attend, but…it’s in Costa Rica. Know what I mean? If you don’t, just imagine a tropical paradise. Then imagine your driveway full of dirty snow that’s only just started to melt. Now, imagine that tropical paradise:
I’m looking forward to it. A whole lot. Come south in early March. Skip the muddy, dripping late Winter transition. The unpredictable weather. The insultingly cold breeze.
Come on baby, drive south with the one you love. I’ll be there waiting, with a banjo on my knee.
Since I got home from Emmylou tour (which starts back up Sept 20…), I have played some great stuff: a trip to see my family in Mobile and Gulf Shores. A whirlwind trip to New York to see our friends Rob and Karan (and various string theorists, philosophers, drummers, occultists and Steve Wynn). Great gigs at Eddie’s Attic (w/ Brigitte Demeyer, whose new album just came out), Pourover Pub by the Nantahala River, and the Magnolia Room in Decatur, Alabama. Recorded with Sara Jean Kelley at Eric Fritsch’s studio, Eastwood, in East Nashville. Played with Marshall Chapman at the Station Inn. Played with Guilty Pleasures for the first time in years at the newly renovated 3rd and Lindsley. Recorded with Kate Campbell at David Henry’s. Made gumbo for some friends, with pre-oil spill oysters I had stashed in my freezer.
Soon to come: more sessions towards my new CD. Sessions at Lij’s (he co-produced “Home Away” and “Americanitis”). DADDY at the MusicCares Benefit Sept 9 at Exit/In. Recording sessions with Lisa Oliver Gray. Brigitte Demeyer’s CD release show. More Emmylou Harris dates….
see you out there.
