Number 4, needs air - flute with Beth
Number 5, something with holes - Fender guitar. George said it might have been a bumper, he wasn't sure.
Why do my blogs get so long? I wait too long to post, maybe?
This started on Saturday night, so two days ago. We went to The Bugle Boy (bugleboy.org) in La Grange.
We saw Susan Gibson's show. It was fantastic, as always. I have posted about her in my blog before. Fun and an amazing guitar and banjo player besides the beautiful song writing and singing. Some performers just bang on their guitars.
Find Susan's music at
http://www.susangibson.com/ You can listen on the page where it says "Music". Be sure and listen to Chin Up where she sings about the Presidential Fitness Test. She wrote a song about how we overuse words making them less "awesome" (one of the words). To make her point she uses shudda, which I used above. It is like saying "I'm sorry" so many times that it means nada. Susan travels all over, not just Texas and if you get to one of Susan's shows you will thank me!!!
Yesterday, Sunday, we went to Strange Brew with Joanna. George Ensle (http://www.georgeensle.com/) was performing with Beth Galiger, flutist www.bethgaliger.com
Gene tells us he doesn't want any presents for his birthday, just to see everyone and enjoy some company. The "kiddos" decided to have a song written about Gene by George. The kids and I sent information to him and he recorded it at Tommy Byrd's studio. I think Tommy played on it, too.
The ballad tells of Gene growing up, working for DEA and more. It is called Larger than Life. The chorus goes:
So step up to the bar
And buy him some wine
He’ll take you traveling
Back to a time
When a man was a man
Who fought the good fight
Living larger than life
It is so much fun. We all cried when the song was played for us in October at Jennie's. We had David on facetime, too, so it was a family presentation.
Anyway, George Ensle is another "must see" performer. His schedule is on his website, too.
